"The Golden Pavilion Temple (Kinkaku-ji) is the name of the hall of relics at the temple grounds of Rokuon-ji. Aside from the basement floor, the whole pavilion is covered in pure gold leaf. Situated in Kinkakuji-chô, Kita-ku, near the Japanese city of Kyoto, The Golden Pavilion Temple was originally constructed in 1397 to serve as the retirement villa of the third Ashikaga Shogun, Yoshimitsu. Originally a luxurious estate owned by the Saionji clan, Yoshimitsu acquired the land after the clan’s influence declined.
The pavilion itself houses relics of the Buddha and serves as the centerpiece of the temple. The temple itself has been burned down multiple times during its rich and storied history, particularly during the Onin War (1467-1477). The temple burned down again later by an insane monk, which later became the subject of a film entitled "The Temple of the Golden Pavilion".
Rokuon-ji, the temple proper, features more than the glinting structure of Kinkaku-ji. Lush gardens and a mirror pond accentuate the Zen quality of the location."
