We visited the golden temple Kinkakuji in Kyoto and it blessed us with infinite wisdom

Kinkakuji is one of Kyoto’s landmarks and is particularly famous for tourists who flock to see the “golden temple”. The Buddhist sanctuary is located in the northwest of the city and its architecture combines different Japanese styles and at the same time is influenced by Chinese elements. And, by the way, it’s absolutely beautiful.

The gold plating gives the pavilion its name and literally makes it shine. When sunlight hits the construction, the Kinkakuji unfolds its real charm. With the light coming in, the gold shines brightly on the walls of the structure, is reflected from the pond in front of it and makes the famous aura of the Golden Pavilion obvious to everyone standing around and looking at it.

Surrounded by an extensive green area, mainly planted with trees and bushes, the Kinkakuji lies on the edge of a large lake, the Kyokochi pond. Deliberately discreetly embedded in its natural surroundings, the pavilion doesn’t stand out glaringly, but nestles discreetly into the park landscape. It’s really a magical place where you can relax for a moment and feel the infinite wisdom the Kinkakuji is blessing you with – even if it’s just your imagination…
