Tenryuji Temple

Tenryuji Temple

Tenryu-ji Temple was built in 1339, and its garden was designated as the first Site of Special Historic and Scenic Importance in Japan, and as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. Utilizing the background view of Kameyama and Arashiyama, the famous garden has both aristocratic elegance and a subtle yet profound Zen atmosphere. The Cloud Dragon drawing by Matazo Kayama, located on the ceiling of the Hatto Hall, is also known as "the dragon that stares in eight directions."
