This is an easy to reach spot, as it is on the highway between Kandy and Nuwara Eliya (village Tawallatenne). The location is amazing, with views of the mountains and valley all around. The temple is quite simple and well maintained by the chinmaya mission....More

Place where Hanuman landed looking for Sita over 7000 years ago - Ramayana as documented history - not a myth. Sita Eliya and other such interesting place nearby.

Lovely, Calm and Relaxing atmosphere set amongst the rolling hills and valleys of Nuwera Eliya on the Kandy Road. Beautiful Temple and wonderful place to relax and unwind whilst on a busy pilgrimage schedule. Wonderful vegetarian food is served here all cooked on the premises.
