  • A small but nice and impressive temple. Located in a mountain location, so a little bit difficult to reach. Dunno if there are tours organized, but we visited with the bike and it wasn’t a big trouble...  more »

  • Spectacular site - and getting here is half the pleasure! Wonderful huge stupa and temple with breathtaking views - and no horrifically overpriced (and discriminatory) entry fees. So serene! A must-visit place!
  • The Pagoda and the building there is very attractive. From around the Pagoda, there are great views of the ocean. Also, it is a real calm environment.
  • Great peaceful religious place/ views are amazing/ parking can be an issue specially during holidays
  • Nice and peaceful surrounding. You can instantly feel the difference.
  • Great place and very nice view of the whole Galle City..
