I would like to do a pilgrimage in Sri Lanka, probably in March 2013 for 2 weeks. I don't have a fixed itinerary yet, except that I want to go to Anuradhapura and probably Kandy too.
I read that monasteries in Sri Lanka are generally welcoming and that the monks often accept pilgrims spending the night in the monastery. Is that true?
All suggestions, travel tips, things a westerner should be aware of, good places to visit, etc. are most welcome!
Also, if anyone is interested in joining me, please PM me! The dates are not fixed yet.
