Japanese Peace Pagoda, Galle Reviews

  • Looks good, nice view, but we got there early to just take photos of the sunrise outside and were turned away by the caretaker. Eventually some locals convinced him to allow us to take a photograph, bit we had to make a donation. Kind of a shame you can't see the place during the most beautiful part of the day. The owner next door from the jungle beach restaurant was really kind and helpful.

  • Unique Buddhist temple with a circular deck for sweeping views of the ocean & surrounding landscape.

  • peaceful place in Galle town area. Attractive environment

  • Peaceful place within the Unawatuna and Galle area. Make sure to cover your shoulders and knees but to also take off your shoes when entering this place. There is no entry fee but feel free to donate to this already paid pagoda by the Japanese.

  • Calm and quit place. Peace Pagoda not just a name it's mean it
