Japan Temple of the Golden Pavilion
In search of a decent Japan temple? Kinkaku-Ji, also known as The Temple of the Golden Pavilion is one of Japan’s most visited historic sites. Originally built in the Shogun era in 1397, this ancient Japan temple has remained an important Zen Buddhist temple for the past 600 years. However, due to an accident by a monk in the mid 1950’s, the temple was burned to the ground. It has since been rebuilt with efforts to be an identical replica of the original, though critics may argue about minor details which were not mirrored perfectly. The temple remains a beautiful site to visit, in a very peaceful setting surrounded by forest and a large pond teaming with coy and other fish. The Temple of the Golden Pavilion is definitely worth a visit if in search of an incredible temple when travelling through Kyoto.
