Chion-in temple (知恩院)

The Chion-in temple is located very close to the Yasaka Shrine. It is a very large temple with a lot trees and splendid architecture. I really liked the feeling of peace emanating for the temple. Slightly uphill from the temple are some cemeteries which offer a great view of the temple and some parts of Kyoto from above.
