108 Zen Temple-photos from the 1600 Zen Temples in Kyoto

The meeting of Buddhist teachings and the Indo-Greek Hellenistic artistic realism in 2nd and 1st centuries BC became the foundation of the elegant and beautiful Gandharan first presentations of Buddha spreading along the silkroad first west then east. Greek king Menander of Punjab (160-140? BCE) embraced Buddhism and during the next centuries Buddhist art flourished in Ceylon, India, China, Korea, Thailand, Burma and Japan leaving a treasure house of Buddha representations. 
We have collected 108 photos from Kyoto Zen temples, Kyoto being the major Zen-city in the world and the number 108 representing perfectionism in Hindu-Buddhist philosophy.
