Beautiful view from the pagoda. Worthy to see it! It is away from the main road but if you are staying in this area or visit the jungle beach, will be on the way. 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.
