「あれ、何故牛さんがいるの?」と、思ったらやはり天神様がお祀りされていました。

Why is there a bull here?  Sure enough, Tenjin was enshrined here.

1794年加賀藩11代藩主前田治脩(はるなが)が兼六園に藩校を建て、その鎮守社として学問の神であり前田家の先祖でもある菅原道真公の御舎利を奉斉する神社を建立したのが始まりとのこと。(その後、兼六園の整備により藩校は移転されました。)

In 1794, Harunaga Ma’eda, the 11th lord of Kaga province, built a provincial school within the Kenroku-en garden, and located Kanazawa Jinja as the school’s guardian shrine.  At the shrine was a bone of Michizane Sugawara (Tenjin), who was a god of scholarship and an ancestor of the Ma’eda clan.  (The school was later moved elsewhere during redevelopment of Kenroku-en.)
