The Golden Pavilion, known as
Kinkaku-ji, is one of the most impressive sites in Kyoto. And on a still day you can see an almost perfect reflection in the lake.
By today’s standards the

Meteora, Greece, but it’s not a house, it is a monastery.
It is now 100 years since the American academic
Hiram Bingham brought the ruins of Machu Picchu to the attention of the world. They have now been cleared, and are celebrating 100 years since Bingham’s discovery, and are now considered one of the wonders of the world.
