Nuwara Eliya - Seetha Amman Temple

The Sita Amman Kovil is regarded as an enduring devotion to the Hindus. Sita Amman Kovil is the only Seetha Devalaya in the world. Sita Amman Kovil has located 1 km from the Hakgala Botanic Gardens and 5 km from Nuwara Eliya. Located in the village of Seethelia. This place is believed to be the place where Sita was imprisoned by King Ravana. Devotees believe that Hanuman had seen the monkey god's feet when he rested here after the battle to save Sita from Ravana. People believe that there is a stone on the opposite bank of the river where Sita sat and meditated. It is said that the stream flowing from the mountains met her needs during her stay. About a century ago, three statues were found in the canal, one of which was Sita's. The newly built temple has a pattern of the South Indian Devale and there is another new temple dedicated to the Hanuman monkey god. The place is becoming increasingly important as a tourist destination.
