Take divine blessings before your journey ahead. This temple is right on the road going to Ella and about one kilometer away from end of the lake area at Nuwara Eliya. Shri Hanuman foot prints on the rocks is worth seeing.

This is not a Temple. Temple is a Buddhist worshiping place. Hence this is Hindu place and can be called as Kovil. You can be reach on the way to Hakkgala Botanical gardens from Nuwara eliya side. Clean place. No entrance fees. Way to the river is slippery. Silence has to be maintained.

The Sita temple we visited was beautiful and serene, and the footprints of Hanuman in the rocks outside the temple were thrilling to see. Our guide was knowledgeable and informative. For Indians ,to see a temple dedicated to the lady that was abducted by Ravana, in his own country ,is akin to revisiting a legend in real time. It is... More

We could see poop (probably monkeys') all around in the temple, even near the sanctum sanctorum. The path to the river is not clean either.

We had an opportunity to visit this historical place, this is just 15 min from newaraelia. It is a very small temple, but quite well maintained.

Very close to Nuwara Eliya . On the Badulla - Nuwar Eliya road at Seetha Eliya on the road side you will see this temple. Only 2 1/2 Kms from N 'Eliya lake and if you are visitting Hakkagala gardens spend about 15-20mnts to drop in and see the beautiful carvings.
