    Nanzen-in, Emperor Kameyama’s Exquisite Garden!

     

    Nanzen-in (南禅院) is a sub-temple of Nanzen-ji (南禅寺) and located in the Northern part of Kyoto. Emperor Kameyama (亀山天皇) established it in 1291 on the site of his previous detached palace. Nanzen-in is a bit tucked away on the far left and behind the famous red brick Suirokaku, an old Roman style aqueduct.

    The Sogen-ike Pond (曹源池) is surrounded by colourful autumn leaves with a little waterfall and stream flowing into it.

    On the left side of the pond is a mausoleum dedicated to Emperor Kameyama.
