The great entrance gate of the Buddhist temple Zōjō-ji. The gate is really called a Sangedatsu Mon (三解脱門) and anyone passing through here can rid oneself of the three passions of greed, hatred and foolishness. The gate dates to 1622 and is the only building in the temple compound that survived the second world war.

Zōjō-ji was founded by Yūyo Shōsō in the 14th century - at another place but it was moved here in 1590 and during the Edo period it was one of the two family temples of the Tokugawa family (the other being Kan'ei-ji).The temple is the main temple of the Chinzei branch of Jōdo-shū Buddhism.

The most southern point of Sweden. The northern most is Treriksröset, 1581 km away (making it further away from this point than both Paris, 1049 km away, and Moscow, 1489 km away).

The windows are Gothic, but the church itself is actually from the 9th century, making it Carolingian.

The church now most famous as the home of Bocca della Verita. Another note of interest is that in this church the skull of the saint St Valentine is kept. (I did not care to stand in line for the first one - but the second can be seen here: www.flickr.com/photos/dameboudicca/7462731122 )

The church itself was founded in 782, and it saw some later additions all the way up to the 12th century. Actually the church got a Baroque make-over too in the early 18th century, but all that was removed in a renovation in the late 19th century.
