Dharma Hall In Kennin-Ji

Dharma Hall in kennin-Ji

The hall stood majestically in the precinct

Shot at Kennin-Ji, a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto. The precinct is spacious and many halls stands in spots. The building in this photo is the Dharma Hall built in 1765. This temple was founded in 1202 and is said it is the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto.

Unlike other major cities in Japan, the city of Kyoto was not bombed during WWII. So many historical architectures were still remaining. If the US army attacked this city, it could be less attractive. I truly felt lucky not to be bombed.
