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.

Sita Temple is located approximately 1 kilometer from Hakgala Botanical Garden. After a hectic go round of the Hakgala Botanical Gardens, we reached Sita Temple. The temple is located in the village called “Seetha Eliya”. The temple is very beautiful. This is located much below the Road level and gives a grand look. This is the place, where King Ravana...

It is by the road and by a small water fall. You could go down to water safely. I have seen many vehicles stopping for a quick prayer. Fished the entire things in 15 min.

It was calm and clean. Temple was maintained well. Known for its heritage story. Was lucky to see sita devi in this place.. The temple has a beautiful river running in the back with the foot print of lord hanuman. Temple as such is beautiful and should never be missed if you could visit.
