Overview

The Ramayana, as an epic, has fascinated many a soul over the years. Though the story starts from India, Sri Lanka plays an integral part of the epic. Even though there lurks some question on the claim, but the people of Sri Lanka are ardent believer of the Ram-Ravana tales. Here, we are offering you an opportunity to travel through the trail of the epic. This might be considered a pilgrimage for the believer. And for the non believers, this trail might provide an opportunity to witness some of the ancient structures of Sri Lanka, along with all the relevant stories, and spectacular scenic beauty. All in all, this 6 nights 7 days journey can throw some light on the cultural and historical aspect of Sri Lanka, which in turn might help in understanding the spiritual context.

Manavari Temple: Manavari is the first place where Lord Rama installed the Siva Lingam and prayed after the end of the war with King Ravana. This Lingam is called Ramalingam because it was made by Lord Rama. Apart from this, the Lingam in Rameshwaram is the only Lingam in the world which is named after Lord Rama.

Munneshwaram Temple: Lord Rama after his victorious battle left for Ayodhya in one of King Ravana’s vimanas. He felt he was being followed by a Brahmahasthi Doshama as he had killed King Ravana who was a Brahmin. He stopped the vimana at this juncture because he felt at this place the Brahmahasthi Doshama was not following him. He ascended from the vimana and asked God Shiva for a remedy. God Shiva blessed Lord Rama and advised him to install four lingams at Manavari, Thiru Koneshwaram, Thiru Ketheshwaram and Rameshwaram in India and pray, as the only remedy to get rid of the a Brahmahasthi Doshama.

Visit the Temple of the Tooth, Royal Botanical Gardens, the Peradiniya University campus and catch a panoramic view of the picturesque town from Upper Lake Drive.

Kandyan Dance Performance: The Kandyan dance has become most distinctively Sinhalese and is readily associated with the idea of a National Dance. This development can be explained by the fact that the Kandyan Kingdom was the last of the Sinhala kingdoms to fall under foreign rule (1815).

Visit the Hakgala Botanical Garden [Ashoka Vatika].

Ashoka Vatika: This area is known as Seetha Eliya, close to the resort city of Nuwara Eliya (1950 meter above the sea level).
Ashoka Vatika was a garden in Lanka, the Kingdom of demon king, Ravana, as mentioned in the Vishnu Purana and Hindu epic.
It was the location, where Sita, the wife of Rama was held captive by Ravana, after her abduction, also because she refused to stay in Ravana's palace, and preferred to stay under the Ashoka tree, hence the name. It was here that Ravana's wife Mandodari came to meet her and also where Hanuman met her for the first time, and identified himself with the finger ring of Rama.
Sita stayed at Ashok Vatika, till the end of the epic battle between Rama and Ravana, which resulted in the destruction of Ravana himself and most of this clan. Much of the Ashoka Vatika was destroyed by Hanuman, when he first visited Lanka, searching for Sita. Also destroyed was the Pramda Van at the centre of the Ashok Vatika.

From the flames arose the fire god Agni who was invoked by Sita. He lifted her from the flames unharmed and presented her to Lord Rama who explained this test was only necessary to prove the truth of her purity and innocence to everybody. Divurumpola is said to have been the location of this episode, because the Sinhalese name means marketplace of oath. Today the temple is respected as a suitable place for oaths that can be helpful settling disputes between parties.

Visit the Ravana cave & water falls

Ravana Cave: These tunnels prove beyond doubt the architectural brilliance of King Ravana. These tunnels served as a quick means of transport through the hills and also as a secret passage. These tunnels networked all the important cities, airport and dairy farms. A close look at these tunnels indicates that they are palace and a tunnel existed. Existing tunnels mouths are situated Ishtripura at Walimada, Ravana cave at Bandarawela, Senapitiya at Halagala, Ramboda, Labokelle, Wariyapola, and Mataleand Sitakotuwa Hasalaka. In addition there are many more tunnels.

Ravana Water falls: A breath taking waterfall, 1080 feet high (cascades into several falls) close to the road from Ella to Wellawaya about 6 Km south from Ella. The stream, a tributary of Kirindi Oya plunges with a foaming spray over a series of ledges into the valley close to a bend in the road. The waters rise from Wewatenna highland above the rocks. In general the rocky underground of the waterfalls in Sri Lanka consists of hard gneiss or granite, but here the material is khondalite, a kind of limestone which undergoes decay faster. This has resulted in many caves being formed near the falls. King Ravana of Ramayana legend is said to have lived in one of the caves above the waterfalls.
