SITA AMMAN TEMPLE - NUWARAELIYA

SITA AMMAN TEMPLE - NUWARAELIYA

“the only Sita temple in the world”,The temple complex is situated approximately 5 km from the Nuwara Eliya town on the road to Badulla. The recently constructed complex, which is patterned on the modern south Indian temple, is set in idyllic countryside beside a clear stream. Adjacent to it is another new temple dedicated to Hanuman, the monkey-god, who according to mythology was instrumental in rescuing Sita from Lanka. The Seetha Amman Temple Trust decided some two years ago to build a Sita temple at a spot believed to be the exact place where Sita was held captive by the demon-king Ravana in the Lanka of the epic, Ramayana. Myth has it that Sita, the wife of King Rama, was imprisoned in the Ashoka forests of the region. The temple trustees believe that this is no myth and that Sita’s imprisonment at this spot is a historical fact.  The two new temples exist on a quarter-acre strip of land. One temple is dedicated to Sita, and the other to Hanuman. The Sita temple looks like any modern-day temple with a multi-coloured dome filled with mythological figures. Three new statues – of Rama, Sita and Laxman – have been installed in the new structure. On the side closer to the river bank is a small shrine with the three darkened idols which were found a century ago.  “There is a rock on the opposite bank where Sita sat and meditated.
