There is one foot print which the locals say belong to Hanuman. But nothing much to see either in terms of architecture or explanations from Ramayana.

Nice small accessible temple to visit. They might ask you a small entrance fee (if the concierge is at his desk). Wonder around and see the beautiful statutes, even on the waterfall behind the temple.

The giant footprints of Lord Hanuman bear testimony to Sri Lanka's role in the Ramayana! Beautiful and scenic temple in the hills - a must visit for alll!
