Kyoto Golden Pavilion

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 7 December 2020 in Architecture.

Kinkaku-ji (Temple of the Golden Pavilion) is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. The Golden Pavilion is a three-story building on the grounds of the Rokuon-ji temple complex. The top two stories of the pavilion are covered with pure gold leaf - therefore it is not very common to present that pavilion in black and white photos. My color photo from the most popular angle is found here...

On December 1, the ballet performance "Golden Temple" premiered at the Estonia Theater. The ballet is based on Yukio Mishima's well-known novel "Golden Temple".
Kinkaku-ji zen-budistlikus templikompleksis asuv Kuldne Paviljon on kolmekorruseline hoone, mille kaks ülemist korrust on kaetud puhtast kullast lehtedega.
1. detsembril esietendus Estonia teatris birdname balletilavastus "Kuldne tempel". Ballett on saanud ainest Yukio Mishima tuntud romaanist "Kuldne tempel".

It was very nice to visit Kinkaku in 2019. The pavilion is currently under repair and cannot be seen in full.

Excellent black and white image from this wonderful location in Kyoto. Love the tonal range and contrast around the entire scene. Fantastic composition and I also like the clouds that add great texture behind the temple.
