A Golden Pavilion for a Faithful Prince: Shitennoji Temple

Although the years have been hard on Shitennoji and few of the early structures stand to this day, the temple complex in Osaka is one of the earliest examples of a site of Buddhist worship in Japan. Located in the heart of the city's Tennoji Ward, the temple has become one of the hubs that life in the city rotates on. Its beautiful grounds welcome locals, pilgrims, and tourists alike.
