RYOANJI GARDEN, The ultimate Japanese Garden

It is a simple but remarkable garden: 25 meters long and 10 meters depth. No trees, just 15 rocks and white gravel. It is believed that the rock garden of Ryoanji (in Kyoto) was created around 1500 by a Zen monk called Zenketsu and it is now-a-days one of the most visted gardens of Japan as it has become a symbol of simplicity, elegance and spirituality. Thousands of pages have been written about this square garden: some have seen animals and hope stories; others, islands in a sea of uncertainty - but it is up to each visitor to find out for himself what this garden means. It may be hard but it is challenging and inspiring. Not to be missed.
