Sita Temple

Description

The epic Hindu tale Ramayana is a story that’s incredibly widespread and popular, particularly in South Asia. It also gave birth to the Sita Temple in Nuwara Eliya, believed to be the only one of its kind in the world. The wife of Lord Rama (Sita) who was pursued by the Demon King Ravana for her astounding beauty and eventually abducted, was supposedly kept imprisoned at this very spot. Devotees have been flocking to the temple for years, and visitors can see the stone it is said she meditated on, the stream that sustained her needs as well as other interesting traits of the area related to the story. The line between fact and fiction here is rather grey, but nonetheless, the location has gained a lot of popularity over the years, and makes for a great addition to your itinerary.
