Japanese Peace Pagoda, Galle Reviews

  • This is a temple located near the Roomassala mountain stretch. The top deck where the Pagoda is located has some awesome views of the sea and the Galle town. There is parking available near the surrounding shops and for some of these you have to pay.

  • Nice temple. Very calm and quiet place. Very beautiful landscape. Great place to visit

  • It is a place with a beautiful view of sea and galle city.

  • 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.

  • Located in the south of srilanka, this has a beautiful view at the back, one slice view is mountains the other side is ocean spectacular view, it’s a Buddhist place where people worship, getting here was quite a task from galle!!!
