Kyoto is literally bursting with breathtaking landmarks and locations. The city itself is a major draw. But one must visit Kiyomizu-Dera, also known as the Pure Water Temple, when in Kyoto. Kiyomizu-Dera, one of Japan's most revered temples, was erected on the site of the Otowa Waterfall in 780 CE. It was initially constructed as a component of the Hosso sect of Buddhism, but by the middle of the 20th century, it had established its own sect. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is famous today for its wooden stage that looks out over Kyoto's picturesque roofs and its magnificent trees, which consistently put on amazing color displays throughout both the fall and cherry blossom seasons. The Jishu Shrine and the Otowa Waterfall, which still gushes at the base of the monument's main hall, are two more significant sites that may be found on the property.
