It's aiso a very nice picture Keno! How old the temple is?


Keno Kawabata on December 7, 2008

Thank you for your comment, Lujun.

Originally the temple was first constructed in 798. Since the city of Kyoto experienced civil wars and battles throuthout the history, it was torn down and reconstructed many times. The current one is dated from 1663.

Here is the general information about Kiyomizi Temple.

Thanks for your interest.

Thanks for your comment, Ismal. I contacted some of my old friends who live there. They are safe now, but it's very heartbreaking they will have tough lives.

For those who lost their lives by natural disaster, I pay some respects. Keno
