Ryoanji Temple Insider Tour in Kyoto

Pay a visit to a famous temple in Kyoto. Appreciate a moment of peace in a rock garden that used to be part of an ancient warlord’s residence. 

With a mysterious origin and an illustrious history, the Ryoanji Temple features a dry landscape garden made up of stones in all sizes and shapes. These boulders are set on pebbled ground which is raked every day by monks.  

No one knows the meaning of the rocks, or the reason for the way they are displayed. It is up to you to define the significance of this thought-provoking garden.
