Ginkakuji, sand mound in main garden

Abstract

The cone or mound of sand is just across a segment of the pond, perhaps 60 feet to the north-north east of the Silver Pavilion. Sometimes referred to as the "moon reflecting mound," along with the adjacent "silver sand beach," it is said to have been intended to reflect moon light into the Silver Pavilion, or to have provided a point for the contemplation of the moon light and shadows. It is a comparatively recent addition to the garden design at Ginkakuji, having been added during the Edo period. In this view of the mound, looking directly east, there is a rich play between the sand mound and the rock and schrub in the foreground.
