Absolutely Beautiful and Stunning Temple

Must visit. Very beautiful temple at around 15-20 mins drive from Gregory lake. The colors are very captivating and the statues are beautiful, something to make any Indian proud.

This is a Hindu Kovil you find in Nuwara Eliya-Badulla road. Recommended to sightsee when visiting Hakgala Gardens since this is just located in the roadside.

As I know the story of Ramayan, I was quite interested in viewing this temple. This temple is said to be the place where Sita was kept by Ravan. There is a nice quite stream at the back of the temple. Also steps of Hanuman are marked with yelllow colour. Nice views on the way from Kandy to this temple.

I was looking forward to visiting this temple which is related to the mythological story Ramayanam. While I was happy to have visited this temple, feel the care takers could take a bit more care in keeping this historical temple in a clean condition.
