Ginkaku-ji, the famed “Silver Pavilion,” has magnificent halls and gardens. This Zen temple was built in 1482 by shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa and was modeled after Kinkaku-ji (The Golden Pavilion). Set at the foot of Kyoto's eastern mountains, the grounds are an outstanding example of Japanese landscape architecture. Ginkaku-ji consists of half-a-dozen other temple buildings, a beautiful moss garden, and a unique dry sand garden. The grounds can be enjoyed by walking along a circular route, from which the gardens and buildings can be viewed.
