SRI LANKA BUDDHISM 

Buddhism runs deep in Sri Lankan life. The island was one of the first places to convert to the religion, in 5th Cent. BC and has remained unswerving faithful in the more than 2500 years since. As such Sri Lanka is often claimed to be the world’s oldest Buddhist country, and the religion’s trappings are apparent everywhere, most obviously in the island’s myriad temple and festivals, as well s in its large and highly visible population of monks.
