Kiy­omizu-dera

Asian Geographic - - Celebratin­g Outstandin­g Brands In Asia -

Part of the His­toric Mon­u­ments of An­cient Ky­oto UNESCO Her­itage Site, Kiy­omizu-dera (trans­lat­ing to “Pure Wa­ter Tem­ple”) is one of the most cel­e­brated tem­ples of Ja­pan. The tem­ple is known for its wooden stage that juts out from its main hall, 13 me­tres above the hill­side be­low. The area is sur­rounded by nu­mer­ous cherry and maple trees, erupt­ing in a sea of colour in spring and au­tumn. It also show­cases its very own wa­ter­fall, the Ot­tawa Wa­ter­fall, within the tem­ple com­ples. It is be­lieved that drink­ing from the three streams brings dif­fer­ent ben­e­fits to the con­sumer.
