Overview
What to Expect
09:00: You will be picked up from your hotel and driven to visit Gayathri Peedam. The first and most important temple built for Gayathri Amman (Gayatri being an aspect of Saraswati and the Universal Mother) in Sri Lanka. Gayathri Peedam is said to be the place from where King Ravana's son Meghanath propitiated Lord Shiva with penance and worship, before he was granted supernatural powers by the mighty god.

10:15: On completion of this visit, you will be taken to visit Diurumpola Temple. This place is said to have been the location where Seetha Devi underwent "Agni Pariksha" (test), to prove her chastity. The Sinhalese name “Divurumpola” means ‘the place of oath’. Today the legal system permits and accepts the swearing done at this temple while settling disputes between parties.

12:30: Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant

13:30: Proceed to Seetha Eliya and visit Seetha Amman temple. Sri Seetha Amman temple is a unique temple situated in Nuwara Eliya. This is believed to be the place where Seeta lived most of the time of her captivity according to the historical Legend of Ramayana. It is also unique in a way that it is one of the very few temples dedicated to Seeta. The place also has footmarks of the monkey god Hanuman.

14:30: After visiting Seetha Amman Temple, you will be driven to visit Ashok Vatika. Ashok Vatika is a garden, located in Seeta Eliya. According to the historical Legend of Ramayana, Seeta was kept in this garden as she refused to stay in Ravana's magnificent palace. Some of the findings here include a rock on which Seeta used to sit and meditate.

16:00: You will be taken back to your hotel.
