Kinkaku-ji Temple, Kyoto

Kinkaku-ji, the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most popular tourist attraction in Kyoto.

Kinkaku-ji, the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most popular tourist attraction in Kyoto. The original complex was built in 1397, but the present structures date from 1955, rebuilt after the pavilion was burnt down in 1950 by a monk while the rest of the buildings had been destroyed during the 15th century Onin War. The top 2 storeys of the 3-storeyed Golden Pavilion are covered in gold-leaf, and each floor exhibits its individual architectural style. Highlights include the relics of the Buddha, the bronze phoenix on the roof, the shakkei gardens, and reflecting pond with an islet representing Japan.
