Sudharmalaya Temple

Buddhist Temple in Galle

Gazing over the lawns on the western side of Galle, this small whitewashed temple complex includes a prayer hall (the unusual design of which, including a belfry, may indicate a former life as a church) and contains a large reclining Buddha. There's also a mini stupa, also painted blinding white, dating from 1889. Yoga classes are held here.
