Kinkakuji

Location: Kyoto, Japan

The Glden Pavilion, known by Japanese as Kinkakuji, was first built in 1397 as a shogun's country villa and then later turned into a Zen temple according to his wishes. The temple faced a lot of blows including the Onin war, a great forest fire, and finally it was burned down completely in 1950 by way of arsen. It was rebuilt in 1955 and has stayed up since. In 1994, Kinkakuji was added to the list of World Heritage Cultural Properties.

Kinkakuji looking as beautiful as ever.

A group photo in front of the golden temple to start off with.

Amarind often said he felt weak whenever he saw a waterfall. So here he is feeling weak.

On the roof is a golden phoenix, which is considered good luck in China.

There is something very soothing about a waterfall.

Here's where you pay.

You can even sit down with some Japanese tea if you wish... for a price though of course.

This lady really wanted to take a photo with the boys. Jack doesn't look very happy about it...
