Atop a hill along the busy road to Unawatuna, this is a lovely peaceful place which also affords excellent views across the laxgoon towards the Galle Fort. Well worth a visit.

Took a tuk tuk up there due to an insury but you could also walk it. I‘d recommend this place and plan a bit time in to just hang out there. Very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

Beautiful views of Galle Harbour. We were there relatively early in the morning and it was quiet and restful to walk around the pagoda and visit the temple. We enjoyed chatting to the Japanese monk.
