The Sita temple is situated just beside the Nuwara Eliya - Badulla road. I was shocked to note that the temple entrance gate has come right on the edge of the road with no margin between. One has to be careful of the highway traffic when entering the temple. The temple is constructed beautifully in South Indian temple architecture. This... More

Apparently this temple has it roots in history in the Indian epic Ramayana where goddess Sita was left by Rama during his exile. Apparently, this is the place where Hanuman handed over Rama's symbol (the ring) to Sita as a sign of his love and existence. There are mythical footprints on the mountains which is believed to be Hanuman's footprint.... More

The only unique thing about this temple is that it is believed that Sita was held captive nearby by Ravan There are wall paitings inside the temple which depict this part of the ramayana story

I visited the temple in june 2015. The place appeared to recount the events that took place during ramayana, where sita was supposed to have stayed in captivity as per the Indian epic. The serenity of the temple exhibits how beautiful and peaceful nature could be. Tourists who visit Srilanka should not give this temple a skip, which is 1... More

Supremely avoidable temple unless you are a devout follower of Sita. The temple itself has a very small sanctum. The deity is garishly painted. The priests do not speak English.

It felt good to go to this temple, the river flowing right next to it contributed heavily. Ashok Vatika (Hanuman footsteps) can be seen from this temple.

The temple is well maintained, you have to pay at the counter if you want any sort of prayer done there.
