After visiting the Geoffrey Bawa house, visit his meditation center created in the 1970s. it actually floats on the Beira Lake and is wonderfully charming, safe and tranquil.

Seema Malaka Temple is part of Gangaramaya temple and it's located in Lake Beira, mainly used for resting and meditation.

This temple is within Beira Lake, so if you're confused about where to find it based on its map location, that's why. Not really as impressive as many other temples in Colombo, though it is notably part of the Gangaramaya complex, which means you don't have to buy a second entry ticket (though certain unscrupulous ticket sellers might try to make you pay again anyway).

This peaceful temple in the middle of a lake is both beautiful and calming. Designed by famous architect Geoffrey Bawa, it's run by the nearby Gangaramaya Temple and was a highlight of my time in Colombo. Same ticket/donation as the Gangaramaya Temple, so you don't have to pay twice if you came from there.
