Japan -> Kyoto -> Ryoanji Temple
Ryoanji Temple    Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture

Ryoan-ji Temple is famous worldwide for its Zen rock garden. 15 stones set in raked white gravel are considered to be the ultimate expression of Zen Buddhism and is meant to defy definitions. Some believe it is islands set in an ocean, but only silent contemplation is meant to unravel its mysteries. Though the rock garden is the main attraction, the building itself is beautiful along with a lower pond-garden.
