POPULAR SHRINES IN JAPAN.

KINKAKUJI (金閣寺)

Also known as the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, Kinkakuji is a Zen Buddhist temple in northern Kyoto. Kinkakuji is a three-story building build on the Rokuon-ji complex. Its upper stories are elaborately covered with real gold leaf. Kinkakuji is set in a Japanese garden and pond that shows the building's reflection. The temple grounds were designed according to Buddha Amida's principles of Western Paradise that illustrate harmony between the heavens and earth.
