The grounds of Ginkakuji Temple contain so called Silver Pavilion and some other buildings, very interesting sand garden in perfect condition, beautiful moss garden and traditional gardens. It’s fairly small but very nice. There are good views of the city as you climb up a hill behind the buildings. You can easily get to Ginkakuji Temple from the Philosopher’s Walk.

This small, white-silver temple is found in the northern portion of Kyoto. This is one of the most famous temples in Japan, so trying to find it not busy might be a challenge. The path one takes around it is quite short, but it does offer a panoramic view of that part of the city. When it is not busy, it does offer a quiet and retrospective atmosphere.

A fairly busy temple but peaceful in the same respect. This is called the silver temple as the mound in the rock garden takes on a silver glow under the moonlight. The path weaves through moss and bamboo up a little hill to provide a view over the city.

Okay the Silver Pavillian, not to be confused with Ginkakuji (the gold Pavilllion) , so I sit and search this picture for the temple, but find none. It does appear the standard gardening layout for the Japanese places, 'cept, where are the rock gardens?
