Bridge And Creek In Shimogamo Jinja

The arched bridge was spanned over the creek

There was a Japanese style bridge spanned over the creek in the precinct. And the hall was seen on the other side of the bridge. This shrine has a long history and one of the oldest shrines in Kyoto.

Yet it's not known exactly when this shrine was built. Legend has it that this shrine was built in 90 BC. There is no way I can believe the legend. It was the reign of the Emperor Trajan in the Roman Empire.

By the way, this shrine was listed on UNESCO's World Heritage sites.
