Ginkakuji (Siler Pavilion) in Autumn Kyoto

Ginkakuji or the "Silver Pavilion" is a wonderful  temple to go see. It is one of my favorites in Kyoto and it is right off the Philosophers path. I have a full post on all the information about it here from my previous trip. So I will spare the long info about this temple so you can check out the visit in the autumn. A lot more people!
The colors with the pine and maples on the grounds were magnificent and you can appreciate the work put in to maintain this look.

It was beautiful at that time of day and the only thing that was not enjoyable was all the people reaching over you and pushing.

The way  that this dry garden was shaped make it look like I used a fish eye lens but it turns here...

It is cool that the path wraps around the grounds and up on the hill so you can look over the temple below and its amazing gardens...
