Sita Amman Temple
This colorful Hindu temple, is said to mark the area in which Queen Seetha was held captive by King Rawana and where she prayed daily for her king to rescue her. The stream that runs from the nearby hill is said to be where the queen bathed during her residence at the nearby gardens of Ashok Vatika. About a century ago, three idols were discovered near the stream, one of which was that of Queen Seetha. Impressions on the rocks of the river bank are thought to be footprints of Lord Hanuman who rested at this spot after the battle to save Queen Seetha from the clutches of King Ravana.

Hakgala Botanical Gardens
This is the exotic pleasure garden where King Ravana kept the depressed Sita, insisting that she marries him. It was here where the heartwarming meeting took place between her and Hanuman, who brought her Rama’s ring with the news that Rama was looking for her. He offered to carry her back but she refused saying it would be an insult to Rama’s honor if she did so. Part of this majestic garden still exists. It is also said that Hanuman nearly destroyed it in order to prove to Ravana of the forces against him.

Divurumpola Temple
Divurumpola’ meaning ‘The Place of Oath’ is site at which Queen Seetha performed a ‘Agni Pariksha’, a fire ordeal to prove her purity to King Rama after she was rescued from the clutches of King Ravana.
