For memories of Tsunami
Sep 2020
Hikkaduwa-Peraliya area was severely affected by Tsunami in 2004. This temple was built with Japanese funds to commemorate the people died from Tsunami. The standing Buddha statue is replica of Barmian Buddha statue destroyed in Afghanistan, This is a road side attraction.

15 metres of sheer terror and destruction
Mar 2020
The top of the sculpture was the top of the wave.
Go stand there and reflect a while. It makes it easier to visualise what happened.

This is a must to visit as it is a symbol of the Tsunami. It has a picture perfect location. Remember to not have your back at Buddha when you take a picture. Its possible to have a blessing by a munk, remember to make a donation.

Remarkable
Feb 2020
Very humbling to see what these wonderful people had to endure and the statue bulit to the height of the water, impossible to measure the difficulties they faced. A relaxing & gentle place of homage to very special people.

Stopped off here to visit the Buddha statue and spent about 15 minutes looking at the photos which show the impact of the tsunami. There is a box for donations. Across the road a little way up the road is the tsunami memorial.

Emotional
Feb 2020
Called here after Tsunami Museum. It is almost impossible to believe that when this memorial was built following the Tsunami it was built at the same height as the wave that hit here. Very emotional but the positivety of the people here since in rebuilding is simply incredible.

Buddha erected by Japan
Feb 2020
Japan has erected Buddha with the height of 14 m – as tall as the tsunami wave. Opposite to this monument there is a memorial monument – I would call it tomb of unknown victims of the tragedy.
