It was very exciting to see Hanuman's foot prints. The little stream behind the temple is apparently believed to be the stream where Sita took bath everyday when she was held captive by Ravana. Do visit this temple to relish the Ramayana stories you have heard from your grandparents.

A very nice experience...There were depressions on the rocks which are said to be Hanumanji's footprints....I wish people would not dirty the place by tossing old plastic bottles into the stream....

Small Indian style temple of Sri Rama, Sita and Lakshman. As per mythology this is the place Sita was kept in captivity by Ravana. There is a small stream behind the temple. Near the stream on the rock one can see deep depressions and this is supposed to be Hanuman's foot prints. As such nothing very special.. Takes around 15-30min... More

Looks like any other roadside temple. It has a huge local following. Kids need to be monitored as there is a stream running right below it.

Visited Seetha temple after our visit to Sri Hanuman shrine as it is only about 30 minutes away. Both are of significant importance in the Ramayana story and hence a must visit on a devotee's trail if they visit Sri Lanka. By the stream, on the rocks, there are footprints of Hanumanji and the tree and round seat where thay... More
