Golden Pavilion, Kingakuji Temple

Kinkakuji Temple, Kyoto
This is another angle of Golden Pavilion. The surrounding nature, trees behind and the pond in front of it, makes the Pavilion more elegant.

I like how you framed the picture with the tree branches. And a beautiful blue sky!

Amazing that you should post this today -- I am just reading a book about Noh plays.

It says "This temple, where the air is always pure and which is breathtakingly beautiful in any weather or season, is about the only place in Kyoto which everyday maintains the feeling of a place f pilgrimage. Visited by thousands of excursionists of the most varied kind and few real piligrims, it remains untouched, every stone lantern an absolute reality and every hall forever untainted."

And now this morning you show it to us.
