The most famous and picturesque temple in Kyoto has to be Kiyomizu-dera
Once a place that attracted many pilgrims, the temple continues to draw many people from all over the world. Kiyomizu-dera Temple (Kiyomizudera) is one of the top places to visit in Kyoto, and it was added to the list of UNESCO world heritage sites in 1994. It is a location where you can feel the history of Kyoto in the air and overlook the incredible view of the city. The temple was founded in the 8th century and was rebuilt to its present structure in the 17th century. Within the premises, you will find a shrine for good relationships and also several resting spots where you can try green tea and Japanese treats. We recommend that you plan to stay for at least an hour inside the temple to fully appreciate its presence!
