  • This is actually near the Clock Tower but probably not high on the list of things to see in Galle. This was evident as there was noone in there. It's small but interesting. The stupa looked stunning.....  more »
  • Inside the Fort there is also this nice Buddhist Temple. It is quite interesting and has an attractive stupa. Anyway, it's major attraction is the quite big reclining Buddha.  more »

  • It is one of the most important temple in Galle area. If you ask chief Monk he will be very happy introduce the different room of the temple (a small offer is welcome) Don t expect something antique and very large, btw a nice place for spend some time if you are strolling in galle fort. Now have also a small apartment ready for rent for tourist, ask in the temple if available
  • Visitors to this small and peaceful Buddhist temple have likened it to a mosque or a church. As such it is popular with visitors of all religions who seek a moment to rest and catch their breath after a busy morning’s sightseeing. The temple’s tranquil ambience and brightly colored murals on walls and ceilings, and spectacular statuary, including a reclining Buddha, give this temple a five-star rating on TripAdvisor. Says one: “This was a bit of a surprise – not much to look at other than a nice old building outside, inside the temple has a stupa and beautiful brightly coloured murals. Worth a visit.”
