Le temple Kiyomizu-dera, un incontournable de Kyoto

Le complexe du Kiyomizu-dera constitue une visite très populaire pour les visiteurs qui découvrent l'ancestrale Kyoto. Bâti à flanc de colline dans le quartier d'Higashiyama, à l'est de la ville, ce temple est classé au Patrimoine Mondial de l'Unesco depuis 1994. Partez à la découverte de ce complexe syncrétique composé d’un temple bouddhique et d’un sanctuaire shinto, à l’est de Kyoto.

The Main Pavilion of Kiyomizu-dera

The main pavilion, or Hondo, stands on a wooden platform mounted on stilts at a height of two meters above the precipice. 

The panorama encompasses the city of Kyoto, magnified by the heights, the abundant vegetation in the area, it is especially beautiful in spring when the cherry blossoms or autumn, when the maple leaves glow

Rest assured, rails protect the unwary from a fall that, according to legend, had many lovers succumb seeing a consecration of their passion. It was not, however, in most cases fatal, because the shrubbery broke their fall.
