The Salgala Forest Monastery offers travelers a truly spiritual experience. The ancient monastery features 18 extraordinary caves, and a history relating to King Valagamba’s years in exile. At present, it serves as a major meditation center for both residing and visiting monks. Visitors are permitted to enter the temple before 1 p.m. daily to avoid disturbing the hermits in the afternoon.
