The temple is very dirty and needs a good clean up. Floors all muddy but that may be due to wet weather. Nevertheless needs a thorough clean out

Very Spiritual temple and its location

This temple is little away from Nuwara Eliya town. After a 4 hours of Scenic Journey from Kandy we reached here. Once you go here you feel as if you touched the Lotus Feet of Mother Sita. This place should be visited once in a life by everyone.

Sighs Temple and Ashoka Wathika a legendary reported place of Ramayanaya and Hindu pilgrimage site located a few kilometers away from Nuwaraeliya center. if you are interest to discover the places related to Ramayanaya in Sri Lanka. Legendary says this is the place of Sitha kept by Rawana. especially a place not to be missed of any Hindu religious people and highly recommend for Indian visitors. Beautiful Hindu Tempe to dedicate deities Rama, Sitha,Hanuman, Lakshman with holly statues. Beautiful small waterfall with rock marks ledgends says foot prints of Hanuman.

On Ramayana tour of Sri Lanka, we visited this temple which is linked to Hindu Mythology and is place of great religious significance to Indians. The Temple has deity of Maa Sita and Lord Ram and they are worshiped together. There is a small spring behind the temple and it has foot step of Hanumanji.

Located 8 kms from Nuwara Eliya, this Temple is right on the road and thus easily accessible. Puja can be offered by paying SLR 101/- at the temple counter.

The temple approach has few stairs and the approach to Hanumanji footprint is a bit slippery. Be aware.

Divine and significant visit. Highly recommended for those who like to be part of history and mythology.

Well we had been told that this place is related to Ramayan.But in reality it seems very different, not so holistic.
All looks as man made not from past.
It takes a very long drive to reach there & Getting disappointed is not good.

Monkey Temple

A slightly different temple from what we visited during our Sri Lanka trip (as mostly are Buddhist Temples). This is Hindu temple with Monkey God statue and interesting embellishment at the roof of the temple. There are many monkeys around this temple, but they are generally not aggressive if visitors ignore them. A small stream at the back of the temple as some visitors would spend some time along the streams. A small temple for a short 30 mins visit without entrance fee, but donations are encouraged without pressure.

The Epics of ramayana..

Being a Hindu Mythological Place one should visit the place to understand the mythological values of Ramayana. Although the Askokaban is no more there(except only one tree) but the Ramayana Charm still exists.

A small but very beautiful temple with a lot of history. Great thing is everything is explained in English so it’s easy to follow and understand the history.
