The Tsunami Honganji Vihara, a massive Buddha and gift from Japan, stands in the southeastern town of Peraliya as a memorial to the 1,500 victims of the 2004 tsunami here, one of the deadliest natural disasters that the island has ever faced. All told, some 30,000 people perished in Sri Lanka as a result of the tsunami.
