Ryoanji, interior, main hall

Abstract

View across the interior of the main hall at Ryoanji. With the fusuma sliding panels open, one can see the integration of interior and exterior spaces that typifies traditional Japanese architecture and also sense how they may be opened and closed within the interior space to define that space in different ways. This current building was moved here from another site to replace the original hall, which burned in 1789. The round wooden object in the forground is a mokugyo, a wooden “bell†or “gong†that is sounded by being struck with a mallet.
