As we know, there are cat lovers all over the world far and wide. I’ve been lucky enough to visit some pretty cool cat lover destinations across the United States. But it seems that now there’s a cat temple I must go to should I ever find myself in Kyoto, Japan.

Appropriately known as the Meow Meow Temple in English, the Nyan Nyan Ji Temple is completely dedicated to the feline kind. This is a unique must-see for any true cat lover who happens to find themselves in Kyoto. Or purrhaps schedule a visit simply because you love cats!

Along with the gorgeous little priestess, there are a number of other felines on the premises—along with everything else dedicated to all things cats. Koyuki loves greeting the many people who visit this Japanese cat temple. Inside the temple, there is also food and beverages offered. Which, of course, are all cat themed.

The priestess’ human told Bored Panda: “This temple was opened by painter Toru Kaya with the theme of this favorite cat.
