  • Sala tere shrilanka jala dage
  • A small but beautiful and unique kind of temple. It resembles the shape of temples in Japan. When visiting Galle don't miss this place.
  • This is a donation from Japanese people. The temple belongs to Mahayana Buddhism . There is a platform around the temple. And there you can have a nice view of the sea and the complete view of the nearby city ; Galle. There is a Mahayana shrine here. You can see how it looks like . It is different from the Theravada Buddhist shrines in Sri Lanka. There are golden colord statues. The Japanese drums. The pagoda is near the famous jungle beach, Unawatuna. You can witness the sea wind there !!!!
  • Must see spot on Sri Lanka. Very impressive with it´s height. You can calm your soul and very nice view on the ocean.
  • This was built to remember the tsunami hit Sri Lanka on 2004. People who lost their lives.
