“Indian mythology out of the blue”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

The place where Sita was confined during her "kidnapping" by Ravana. The temple, the hills, the lush greenery. The giant footsteps, outlined in yellow, believed to be Hanuman's footprints.

Sad to see that the temple is not maintained at all.

“Lost in the beauty of nature”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Sita Temple is situated in a place called Sita eliya, near Nuwareliya (Nuwara means city, eliya means light). Nuwareliya is called as city of lights. According to ramayana, god hanuman burnt this entire city and hence it is called as city of lights. This place is in the centre of Ashoka vanam, The climate is very cool and the river by the side of this temple is awesome.

“A pleasant climate !!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

As the belief goes Ravana had kept Sita confined in Ashok Vatika. If this is "Ashok Vatika" then the place is really good, the climate is mildly cold and the surroundings are beautiful with lush green hills and gardens. The temple though seems to be slightly run down, due to lack of funds. The giant footsteps believed to be of Lord Hanuman is somewhat difficult to digest but makes an interesting sight. There is a small waterfall beside the temple and is a good place to rest, breathe in fresh air and enjoy the sights and the weather. A memorable place to visit.

“Very poorly maintained temple”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Very poorly maintained temple. Has lost its charm. The temple in itself was very dirty and looks deserted.

“dont understand logic !”
Reviewed April 25, 2014
