Kinkakuji a.k.a. That Golden Temple in the Mac Wallpaper

Mac users should find Kinkakuji familiar. After all, it was one of the computer’s default wallpapers. It looks better without any desktop icons cluttering it.

Kinkakuji is a popular Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto. It’s a three-floor building, with each floor using a different architectural style. The top two floors are covered in gold. Perched on the roof is a golden phoenix.
