Ram, Sita, Hanuman and Ravan are the main characters in this 5000 year old site where Sita was kept by Ravan after abducting her. Hanuman'a giant footprint is a sacred Pooja site. An incredible experience. One is culturally much richer and an absolute must for all visitors

On our way to Udawala on the road side found this famous temple. This is where according to Hindu mythology Rawana imprisoned Sita. A famous beautiful but small colorful temple supposedly with the foot steps of Hanuman the monkey God. Definitely worth the visit including the sight of the monkeys !!!!!!

Fun temple for those familiar with Hinduism. Important site in the Hindu myths. New paintings and be sure to look for the monkey god's foot print below on the rocks.

This is a place that some like us might seek out but is is on the main road and hard to miss. It is a quiet and understated place and leaves one (it did us anyway) with a feeling of peace and tranquility. The place is more meaningful if the history behind the story is understood. It is possible, for... More

We stopped here on our way to our next destination. It was covered with very cute monkeys including some baby ones. The temple is highly decorated. Suddenly there was a huge bang like a gun - it was actually a monkey scarer and it did work!

Small yet distinctive in design and color, this temple sure catches the eye. The idols inside are simple and showcase the local flavor. The "Hanuman footprint" is a unique feature of the temple.

We came across the temple as we were driving along the highway. We stopped to have a look and I'm glad we did. It was a very beautiful place. Recommend visitors stopping to have a look.
