Visit Rawana Hot Water Wells in Kanniya

The hot wells of Kanniyai are only about 10 kms from Trincomalee town near the main road to Anuradhapura. Pilgrims believe in its power to heal. There are other versions of the tale about how these wells of soothing hot water came into being; most are Ravana related. One myth on Kanniya's roots has it, a place where Ravana performed the last rites of his mother. Seven times in frustration, he stabbed his Trishula into the ground when he couldn't find water to perform the rites properly. Water immediately began to gushing out. The very hot water was cooling down to the present degree when Ravana's wrath calmed down. The water temperature is different in all seven wells.

Srilanka Ramanyan Tour- Visit Thiru Koneshvaram

Thiru Koneswaram is a magnificent temple, perched on a promontory of Trincomalee limestone. It was founded on Lord Shiva's instructions which were inspired by the devotion of King Ravana, by Rishi Agastya. In this respect, this place is special since the Lord built a temple for his devotee as a reward for his devotion. Here too, it is believed that Lord Rama gave his prayers to rid him of the malediction of killing Brahmahasthi Dosham, a brahmin Ravana.

Near the ancient temple of Koneswaram, both ancient temples share roles during the procession of the Ther Thiruvillah Festival and the Back Bay Sea (Karatkarai Theertham). The temple of Pathirakali Amman received visitors from before the 11th century CE. King Rajendra Chola I significantly expanded the shrine during his reign, an inscription he left detailing this is displayed on the premises.

Sri Muthumariamman Kovil Matale

Arulmigu Sri Muthumari Amman Hindu Kovil is a very religious Hindu shrine in Sri Lanka which is situated in the historic town of Matale.

Dunuvila

Dunuvila is sometimes written Dunuwila, Dunuvila or Dunuwilla on the outskirts of Wasgamuwa National Park. The location from which Lord Rama shot the deadly Brahmasthram weapon at King Ravana is said to have been. The explanation for this distinction is: "Dunu" meaning bolt, and "Vila" meaning River. So this place got its name because Lord Rama shot his arrow from it.

Dunuvila

Laggala Temple

Laggala near Dunuvila is another location in the northeastern part of the Highlands that has recently become associated with the Ramayana, since the name Laggala or Lakgala or Lakegala derives from the Sinhala word Elakke Gala meaning goal Stone. Laggala is said to have been a watchtower for the Army of King Ravana And it was from Laggala that Ravana's soldiers first sighted the army of Lord Rama. The beginning of Lanka's war is not only synonymous with Laggala, but even more so for her final fight. The top of Laggala is flat; this is believed to have been the result of being struck by the Brahmasthram weapon after it was shot by Lord Rama from Dunuvila killing the target Ravana on that hill.

The Temple of the Tooth Relic  

Sri Dalada Maligawa or Holy Tooth Relic Temple is a Buddhist temple in the Sri Lankan city of Kandy. It is situated in the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy, where the Buddha's tooth relic is kept. The relic has played an important role in local politics since ancient times, because it is believed that whoever holds the relic holds the country's governance. Kandy was the last capital of the kings of Sri Lanka and is a World Heritage Site mainly because of the temple.

Gurulupota

Gurulupotha is thought to have acted as an aircraft repair center in King Ravana's capital city, because the Sinhalese name Gurulupotha means "parts of birds" In Valmiki's depiction of Pushpaka Vimana, the "flowery ship," by King Ravana, resembled a hurricane. But it is also assumed that it had the appearance of a massive pacific, and therefore it was called Dandu Monara, "flying paacock." But sometimes, it is said that the Pushpaka Vimana and the Dandu Monara were different types of prehistoric aircraft that Ravana used.

Seetha Kotuwa

Sita Kotuwa is located near Gurulupotha, in Hasalaka. It is a beautiful remote spot, surrounded by streams and waterfalls and calcareous caves and abundant flora and fauna where you can visit the ruins of a traditional forest monastery from the late Anuradhapura (7th to 10th centuries). But it is linked to the Ramayana Trail by the name Sita Kotuwa which means "Fortress of Sita." The place is said to have been Queen Mandodari's magnificent palace. In this palace Sitadevi was held captive until she transferred to Asoka Vatika. Sita Kotuwa means Fortress of Sita.

After Breakfast at Hotel,

Visit SRI BAKTHA HANUMAN TEMPLE

The Chinmaya mission's Sri Lankan branch, dedicated to promoting Ramayana philosophy as well as Ramayana Trail pilgrimages, constructed a temple between Kandy and Nuwara-eliya main road with Hanuman as presiding deity in Ramboda. There is a granite statue of Rama's devoted supporter Hanuman 5 meters tall. He is believed to have started his search for Sita in the hills of Baroda. Traditionally, Hanuman was not as popular among Sri Lankan Tamil devotees as he was in India, because with his burning tail he devastated parts of the island. But in recent times Hindu missionaries and local Tamil spiritual leaders began building shrines for worshipping Hanuman in Sri Lanka, too. The Tamil word for Ramboda, Rampadai, means "Rama's force", this is why Ramboda is believed to be the area where Rama collected his troops.

SRI BAKTHA HANUMAN TEMPLE

Visit Sita Amman Temple

Located halfway between the highland village of Sita-eliya and the Hakgala Botanical Gardens, the Sita Amman Temple has become the most venerated of all Ramayana Trail sites in Sri Lanka because it is believed to be the location where Sita lived on the island of Lanka most of the time of her captivity. Upon refusing to remain in the glorious palace of Ravana, she was moved to Ashok Vatika or Ashokavanam where she lived under Ashoka trees. It was here that she was visited by Ravana's wife Mandodari, and that Hanuman first saw her, marking himself with Rama's ring (finger). Sita is said to have taken a bath in the water nearby. There are interesting gaps in the rocks on the bank of the river believed to be Lord Hanuman's footprints.

Rama appointed Vibhishana as new King of Lanka after Ravana's death. Vibhishana is venerated as a deity by the Sinhalese Buddhists.
