Take my word for it, the Golden Pavilion Temple is even more beautiful in the flesh.
The temple is one of several buildings in the Deer Garden in Kyoto, Japan. It was originally built in 1397 as a retirement villa for a shogun and has burned down and been rebuilt several times. The entire pavilion is covered in pure gold leaf except for the basement floor.
