Though Kogenji is not as old and has no long history as other temples in Kyoto, it has a small but charming garden and landscape as well as painting on the wall in it's way. Worth visit, just nest to Tenryu-Ji temple (3 minutes walk) and not far from Hogon-in temple (10 minute walk). You can buy a bundle ticket to save cost and visit all 3 temples in one day.

Kogenji Temple is located immediately on the right side of Tenryuji Temple with shrines and nice zen garden inside. In order to avoid the huge crowds at the latter site, it is an alternative to visit Kogenji Temple.

On the right inside the Tenryuji Temple complex, a small gate of Kogenji Temple offers an alternative to the crowds that is heading to the main temple of Tenryuji. Inside Kogenji temple, on the left side is a small shrine for worship where you can throw a coin and pull the string to bang the gong, and say your prayer. The humble Kogenji temple has admission fee and you have to remove your shoes before entering the temple. Kogenji temple has some features: - Statue of Bishamonten, one of the four heavenly kings in Buddhist pantheon. Bishamonten is famously known as Visravana or Jambhala (Sanskrit), associated with Kubera, the gods of wealth and fortune. - a zen garden with borrowed scenery, taking the mountain as an integral part of the background of the garden. - ink paintings - fan paintings and rolling door paintings Note : this temple is quieter than the main temple. high quality Bishamonten postcards are available for purchase near the ticket counter.
