Japanese Peace Pagoda Reviews
Это место по моему находится по дороге к пляжу Jangel Beach. Как всегда посещали самостоятельно. Добирались пешком. Интересно. more »This place on my way is on the way to Jangel Beach. As always visited independently. We got there on foot. Interesting.
A great spot to overlook Galle. The temple itself is a little underwhelming and there’s not a lot of history provided. more »
A beautiful structure. Really amazing how all the Japanese peace pagodas look. Beautiful view and beautiful location.
On the hillside west of Unawatuna, this impressive pagoda was built by Japanese Buddhist monks of the Mahayana sect in 2005, as part of their scheme to build peace temples in conflict zones.
