We were here when there was pleasant breeze, moderate rainfall and temperature was close to 7 degrees. The water flowing besides the temple and the scenic surroundings made us keep wanting for more. Great place and a must visit place for all people who follow and believe in Ramayana. The foot steps of Hanuman is also worth a sight.

We see Ram Temple, Hanuman Temple in many places. Its very rare we see Sita Temple. I was happy to visit this temple on Vijaya Dashami day of Dussera. The legend says...... they are the foot prints of Hanuman down there behind the temple, near the water stream.

The reason one goes here is to see where Sita was kept in captivity while at Lanka.Very peaceful and nice scenery. Very good if you are religious, even otherwise a nice scenic location.

Passed by this Hindu temple on our way to the Botanic Garden nearby. Not a very large temple and situated right next to the roadside. Carvings and statues were very interesting but all Hindu related and for normal visitors, we need explanation from tour guides or study the history beforehand. Not a "must see" visit spot in Nuwara Eliya.
