You’ll see the stupa easily from the western ramparts but the best feature is the old white-and-stone streetfront. There’s not much inside, some buddhas and a small garden out the back.

Found this temple whilst wandering around the fort, and what a beautiful piece of architecture and oasis when in the narrow streets of the fort.

This is a small Buddhist temple not far from the fort ramparts and on the edge of town. It felt welcoming and peaceful, and was a great place to have a moment of quiet reflection away from the hustle and bustle of Galle.

This is a cute little temple inside Galle fort and the place is well maintained in the old colonial style. the entire Galle fort is an example of pure colonial memory as there is not an inch of newly renovated structure
