We took a tuk tuk up to the Pagoda and were fortunate to be almost the only travellers there. The views are magnificent out over Galle Fort and the ocean. There was a small temple with a full alter but on entering a 'guide' was hovering over us welcoming us and trying to chat with us which destroyed the calm we were expecting. As I was taking many photos I had money ready for a donation - as I went to put it into the proper box he did try to get me to put it in a grubby tupperware box over on a table away from the alter - I am afraid that I ignored his request and put it in the locked metal box. Do go and see the Pagoda though as the views are quite breathtaking.

Had a brief visit here. Amazing views, complete serenity and a wonderful ride up the jungle covered hill from the main road. A world away from busy Una....

Wonderful location and great views, the monks were very welcoming also. We walked up from our hotel and the scenery and views on the walk were great.
