During our recent stay in the old capital, we finally got around to visiting some of the must-see sights of Kyoto.
One of them is definitely the temple complex of Kiyomizudera (清水寺), which is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Its name translates to clean water temple and is due to a spring on the temple grounds, whose water is ascribed therapeutic properties. Kiyomizudera is located on the slopes of Higashiyama and overlooks the city of Kyoto.
