Seetha Amman Temple Reviews & Ratings
I visited this place when it was raining crazily. It's a small temple where Hanuman rescued Sita from. The temple is sweet. The weather was amazing if you love rains. Water flowing from below. Nice experience!
Hinduism is one of the oldest religions which still has the ability of it's secret methods and believes. This temple catches eyes of everyone and the stories tells how long Sri Lankan history goes.
Nice cold place to visit, with seetha Martha's blessings
Seetha Amman Temple is located approximately 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from Hakgala Botanical Garden and 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) from Nuwara Eliya. The temple is located in the village of Seetha Eliya (also known as Sita Eliya). This place is believed to be the site where Sita was held captive by (Vikram) king Ravana, and where she prayed daily for Rama to come and rescue her in the Hindu epic, Ramayana. On the rock face across the stream are circular depressions said to be the footprints of Lord Hanuman.
How does one rate a temple ? Its serene, tranquil and in the midst of Gods natural beauty. Its 7 star!! Footprint and Handprint of Lord Hanuman over a stream. Feels blissful.
