The Peace Pagoda is on the hillside of the Galle Fort and is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. The Mahayana sect built the Peace Pagoda as an initiative to establish peace in the Sri Lankan conflict zone. The Pagoda is a spectacle to witness, especially when you view it from the side of Unawatuna, which makes it look like it has grown out of the jungle.
The design of the Peace Pagoda is such that it acts as a focal point for peace for all creeds and races and helps them to unite and come together to promote world peace. A stupa is a place for you to get in touch with your spiritual self while you sit calmly and meditate.
There is also a staircase around the stupa which you can go around. The magnificent stupa has four statues of Gautama Buddha, which indicate his birth, his enlightenment and the attainment of Parinibbana (salvation). From this place, you can also enjoy the breathtaking view of the sea and the city. So, head out the peace pagoda for a calming and spiritual experience.
