This looks interesting, Richard. Do you know what it is? Best, Ana

Greetings Ana, Thanks for visiting, your comments and your questions. This is a small shrine where you can offer a prayer. It is through a small torii gate, up a short winding path and very peaceful. You pull on the rope to summon the spirits, you drop a donation into the box and say your prayer. It is very simple and very beautiful. One of my favorites among all the shrines.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Anna, Thanks so much for the visit. This is a very nice little out of the way shrine to offer a prayer and donation to the temple. The shrine blends in very nicely with the rest of the peaceful feel of the Silver Pavilion.

Cheers,

Rich
