The Temple of the Golden Pavilion in Japan

The Temple of the Golden Pavilion or Rokuon-ji (Deer Garden Temple) is a beautiful Zen Buddhist sanctuary. The site was established in 1397 and featured a villa of an important statesman. After centuries of turbulent twists and turns the present three-story structure was built in 1955. Gold leaves were added to protect the dead from bad energy.

Each floor represents different style, but overall it echoes wealthy aristocrats and their lavish culture. The garden complex surrounding the temple is an example of Muromachi – a historic period that took place from the 14th to the 16th centuries. It features statues that people throw coins at for good luck, a large pond that is said to never dry up and the Sekkatei Teahouse. Also you can enjoy tea and sweets as well as buy a souvenir on your way out.

When to go there?: All year round – it is beautiful at any time of the year. In summer you can enjoy the greenery, but in winter everything is covered in snow and no less picturesque.
