Located a few kilometres from the city of Galle, the Japanese Peace Pagoda is a unique shrine that guarantees peace and solitude to anyone who visits. Built by the Japanese Nipponzan-Myōhōji order in 2005, it was made as a symbol to promote peace in the island. A short hike to the summit of the Rumassala Hill and you’ll find yourself in awe of the pristine pagoda. Enjoy the unhindered and stunning views of the coast and the bustling town of Galle when you reach the top.
Perched on Rumassala Hill, visit the peace pagoda before enjoying a refreshing swim in Jungle Beach on your way down. Head back Taru Villas - Rampart Street in Galle Fort to rest and relax afterwards.
