Quiet and Relaxing Honen-in temple @ Kyoto, Japan

Honen-in temple is one of Kyoto hidden temple was founded in 1680 to honour the priest Hōnen. The lovely, secluded temple with carefully raked gardens set back in the woods. It really a quiet place and suitable as a place for meditation. You can hear the sound of the leaves rustling.
