954: Byōdōin, Kyoto

A strikingly different wide-angle view of one of the most famous temples in Kyoto. Compared with the usual "full-frontal" view, as in the design on a 10-yen coin, here we get a good sense of the setting and surrounding garden. This building is the Amida Hall, or more familiarly the Phoenix Hall, after the birds perched on top of the central roof.

Mark Schumacher has an interesting page on the phoenix, including closeups of the birds on roof of this temple.
