Temple of Yoshimitsu Ashikaga who constructed the Kinkaku-ji temple

In 1392 (the third year of Meitoku era), the Rinzai Sect. Shoukoku-ji was constructed by the third Shogun Yoshimitsu Ashikaga due to the royal order from the Emperor Gokomatsu. The shodouu was burned down during the Ounin war, but the temple has produced many noble Buddhist saints as the central for the Zen government and contributed to the rise of Zen culture in Muromachi period. Later on, the cathedral ceiling had a repair under the support of Toyotomi family and Tokugawa family but it was burned down again by conflagration of Tenmei. In the fourth year of Bunka period it was finally repaired back to the former state.
