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.

The story of ramayan form the sri lankan point of view was amazing. The guide and temple person did a good job of narrating it. As an Indian I got to know another version of the great epic of Sri Ram.

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.
