Zen Temple in Japan

I went to Kennin-ji, the oldest Zen Temple in Kyoto.
It has beautiful gardens and wonderful arts.
the second picture is my favorite "The Wind and Thunder Gods".
The last one is Hatto - Dhama Hall. The front facing altar enshrines a seated image of Shakyamuni Tathagata and attendant statues of the Buddhist priests Mahakasypa and Ananda.
The painting on the ceiling is "Twin dragons" (11.4m by 15.7m). Amazing and powerful!!
