Heian-jingu Shrine is a relatively recent addition to Kyoto's collection of sacred places, but is still a very impressive shrine which features elegant, richly-colored buildings surrounded by large gardens in the four cardinal directions.

Built in 1895 to commemorate the 1100th anniversary of the founding of Heian Kyo (Kyoto), and dedicated to the Emperors Kammu and Komei, the first and last Emperors to rule Kyoto, the buildings are a partial replica of the Imperial Palace of the Heian Period (794-1185).

This image shows the "Taihei-Kaku Bridge" (said to be the original bridge on which the story "Memoirs of a Geisha" was based on) with the hills of the Higashiyama range forming the backdrop. I was there at the wrong time of year, as this bridge should really be photographed in late autumn when the leaves of the trees in the background take on orange and brown hues - another time maybe :)
