Old and new in Ginkakuji Temple

Ginkakuji Temple, Kyoto sightseeing
This is neither in a sandbox nor in a beach. This is an object in a garden of a temple. What purpose is it made for, anyway? The purpose is unclear but some says that a bonze used to heap up sand for sanding a path. The heap gradually turned to be like this.

This object looks rather modern. But more than 500 years old building also is in this temple. The old mixed with the modern in this temple.
