Sita Temple

Legend has it that the colourful Hindu Seetha Amman Temple at Sita Eliya marks the spot where Sita prayed for Rama to rescue her when she was held captive by the demon king Rawana. Many Tamil wedding parties make a point to stop here for puja, gathering by the rock face across a stream where circular depressions are said to be the footprints of Rawana’s elephant. The Sri Lankan Ministry of Tourism has plans to make the temple complex an official pilgrimage site based on claims that the story is not merely a legend, but that Sita really was imprisoned here.
