Set in the mountain Hanuman Temple. Peaceful in a picturesque setting. Not too many people. Prayers can be done calmly. Real history here with across the temple the mountains are shaped as if Ram is lying down.

This temple is worth visiting. Do take lunch at this place. Pure veg food served here. This is believed to be the place where Hanuman first stopped / landed at Sri Lanka

Most of the temples we've seen in Sri Lanka where Buddhist, so seeing a Hindu temple was interesting. Especially one for Hanuman. Worthwhile stopping en route.

It is almost midway between Kandy and Nuwara Elia. The temple gives you a feel of the mighty prowess of Hanumanji. The spot is run by Chinmaya mission and they also run a vegetarian restaurant, at un believable prices.

Hi I agree with the above comments. But it's worth contacting the temple to see if there any way around the 50 steps. The steps are absolutely no for less able person. Looking at the things up in the temple I am hoping... More
