Daigoji Temple

This is a main hall of Daigoji Temple in Kyoto. It has a huge precinct including a five-story pagoda, a magnificent Japanese garden and a museum. The original temple was constructed in 925, but it was burned down by fire and the present hall was completed in 1600. I love the shape of roof and tiles.
This temple is very famous for its abundant cherry blossoms. Now  the season is almost over, not so many people visit here.

  1. Japanese temples are so gorgeous. Thx for sharing.

  2. I heard there are quite many temples in Kyoto. I guess it would take months to see them all!

  3. Off season visits are often better, more time and space to enjoy without the crowds of people. - Margy

  4. Good day and a wonderful Wednesday ... Annie

    I like this temple very well again, they radiate a little mystique for Europeans, and I feel like a fairy tale ...

    Greetings to you from Geli

  5. Wonderful! I LOVED my time in Japan and can't wait to get out there again someday. :)

  6. It's quite an amazing structure, Annie. It certainly deserves lots of visitors even when the cherry blossom season is over, I think! Lovely shots.
