    Worth visit
    Beautiful Hindu temple located in a beautiful mountain view. Just few away from the main road with a steep mountain drive. especially this place is popular among the Hindu pilgrimage but recommend to visit any visitor to see the beautiful view and spiritual place. if someone go for religious purpose better to check the time they open the door of the main shrine for the pilgrimage.

    Hanuman temple Ramboda mountain
    Sri bhakta Hanuman temple by chinmaya mission is neatly maintained. Peaceful. View of the valley from here is amazing. Hanuman is huge and we went during afternoon closing time. We attended Hanuman chalisa bhajan. Priests were so happy to explain about the place. For those who want good sattvic vegetarian food there is an Annapoorani restaurant. From the nearby Ramboda village(2kms away) small kids come and study here. A pre school is there. When the teacher came to know my daughter studied in chinmaya school she warmly welcomed her into the classroom and showed it( it was just closing time and kids already left. But we saw them outside). Very nice place. Easily we can spend some quality time there. We were there for 2 hours. On the top of the mountain. In most of the Budhist Viharas they charged for foreigners ie non srilankans. But the Hindu temples here didn't charge any entry fee.

    Lovely views
    We stopped at the temple en route from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya, and we’re glad we did because of the gorgeous views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Unfortunately, we arrived during a lunchtime closure between 1230 and 1530, so couldn’t enter the temple. There is an on-site restaurant, nice shop, and ample parking. A nice place to stretch your legs while passing through. Be prepared, there are strict rules about attire, more stringent than any other temp Lowe ever visited in Sri Lanka.

    Well kept temple
    Old temple of Sri Lanka. Very well kept. Neat clean place. Religious value for Hindus. Was surprised to see a large number of foreigners. As you get out of temple, look in front at the skyline and you find the shape of mountain looks as if Hanumaan is lying there. My guide showed me this. :-). Worth a visit

    Check what you wear
    If you are not appropriately dresed, you will not be allowed to enter the temple. The idol is pretty huge and very captivating. The environment in and around the temple is also very serene and offers a great view of the valley. If you are visiting Ramboda falls, you can plan a visit to this temple.

    Chinmaya mission oversees this temple
    We were pleasantly surprised to know that the Chinmaya mission oversees the supervision of the Baktha Hanuman Temple at Ramboda. First things first. Buy the Ramayana trail book at the temple...it is not available so easily elsewhere certainly impossible for a tourist to scout around. That book opens up alternate travel arrangements for all devout Hindus to make in Sri Lanka as it explains with simplicity and pictures, the various places in the island country where references to Lord Rama has been made. The temple itself overlooks a valley and we could see an silhouette of sleeping Lord Hanuman with hands folded in reverence to the Lord. a divine experience. Nearby the temple is the equally beautiful Nuwara eliya hill station...another must-stay place when in the beautiful country.

    Fantastic location Beautiful View.
    Shri Bhakta Hanuman Temple built by Chinmaya Mission of Sri Lanka. Located in Wavendon Hills, Rambodha on Kandy-Nuwaraeliya Road located approximately 30 odd kilometers North of Nuwara Eliya on A-5 highwayThe temple itself is situated about 2 KMs from the main road on a hill at a commanding location .Legend has it that Shri Hanuman had landed at this place when he had come in search of Sita. A good tar road connects the temple and the main road . Three wheeler rikshaws are normally available to take you from main road to the temple & back.. The temple is not too big nor very ornately decorated but Chinamaya Mission has done a Wonderful job of maintaining the temple , the surrounding areas which are spotlessly clean. The gardens maintained by the mission are very beautiful. During our visit Roses were in full bloom and looked very pleasing to the eyes . The idol of Shri Hanuman is of black granite and it is carved beautifully and stands tall at 16 feet.We were not permitted to photograph the idol ( but I have seen them on the net .) so instead took photos of the sign board by the main road. From the location of the temple one can see the Kotamale Reservoir and the entire Kotamale Valley . The view is simply breath taking and very very beautiful . Even if you are not a religious person visit to this place is strongly recommended just for the scenic beauty and the awesome view one gets from this place.

I am a devotee of lord Hanuman and it gave me great pleasure to see a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman in Sri Lanka. There is 18 feet long statue of Lord Hanuman in this temple. I visited this place on full moon day and special pooja/offerings took place in this temple on that day. I spent almost 3 hours there in the temple. The nearby scenic view are marvellous. It is believed that Lord Hanuman first stepped on this hill when he reached Sri Lanka in search of Goddess Seeta. had there been some more time with me I would have definitely spent some more hours there. There is a pure vegetarian restaurant near the temple and the food there is very tasty. This temple in Sri Lanka is managed by Chhinmaya Mission of India.

Built by Chinmaya Mission, the beautiful Bhakta Hanuman Temple is located on the way to Nuwara Eliya. Apart from the temple which is on a hill, the views from the temple are magnificent too.

Much for the delight of Vegetarians, it has a pure vegetarian restaurant, Annapoornin to cater to your taste buds.
