Sita was held here by Ravana. Foot steps of Hanuman is highlighted on the riverbank. The positive here is the entrance is free unlike most Bhudha temples. A must for those following the history of Ram, Sita and Hanuman.

We all were excited to visit this place to see the temple and the footprints of Hanuman who visited this place where Sita was kept captive by Ravana, the King of Sri Lanka. It is worth visiting this place from religious and historical point of view.

This is one of the most popular place in Nuwara Eliya, religiously connected with the history of Ramayana. Its about 4 km away from NE and the most venerated of all Ramayana Trail sites in Sri Lanka. It is believed to be the place where Sita spent most of her time during her captivity in Lanka and have bathed in... More

After reading plenty of the place Sita was kept prisoner (in all comfort) by Raavan, this was a must visit. It was worth the detour. A beautiful colorful temple with the added history, this temple is a must if around Nuwara Elita.

Temple is right on the road. Constant stream of travellers stopped to make offerings and be blessed while we were there. We watched blessing ceremony of a few couples. Had great fun watching monkeys steal fruit and veg offerings. One stole a banana stuch with 4 smoking incense sticks. Not fazed at all.

We went during an early morning worship service. There were prayers, incense, and monks. This made for great photos. Budget for 15 to 30 minutes.

Beautiful temple with carvings and statues near the hakgala gardens. If you follow indian history you will feel bound to stop and visit. Needs about half an hour abs is right on the main road.

This temple is very close by from Nuwara Eliya, hardly 10 mins drive may be. It is located between the mountains with a small rivulet flowing beside it. The place closely resembles as the Ramayana describes Ashokvan, where Sita was held captive by Ravan, as being surrounded by huge mountains from all sides in such a way that it would... More
