Japan 2012 - Kiyomizu-dera Temple

Another famous Kyoto temple at the foothill of Higashiyama  is Kiyomizu-dera. This temple is probably the most popular in Kyoto, and its main hall is listed under UNESCO World Heritage. The temple takes its name from the waterfall within the complex - kiyo mizu means "clear water".


This temple also has a large garden compound. Views of the nearby hills are truly magnificent, and you can also get great views of Kyoto City from here. This is one of the must visit sights in Kyoto.


One of the temple's big attractions is the clear water fountain. Many believe that drinking the water can grant you good heath, fortune and even make your wishes come true.
