Sri Dalada Maligawa or the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic is a Buddhist temple in the city of Kandy, Sri Lanka. It is located in the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy, which houses the relic of the tooth Buddha. Since ancient times, the relic has played an important role in local politics because it is believed that whoever holds the relic holds the governance of the country. Kandy was the last capital of the Sri Lankan kings and is a UNESCO world heritage site partly due to the temple.

The Kandy National Museum opened in 1942 is located next to the sacred Temple of the Tooth and is housed in a section of the Royal Palace where the King’s concubines resided. This museum has over 5000 objects on display and among the most impressive exhibits are king Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe II's golden crown and a copy of the 1815 treaty known as the ‘Kandyan Convention’ by which on March 2, 1815, Ceylon ceded to the British ending 2,357 years of monarchy.

The last king to reside in the Royal Palace was King Sri Wickrama Rajasinhe until he was overthrown by the British in 1815 with the aid of Kandyan chieftains. Once part of a large palace complex that included the Raja Wasala, (King’s Palace), Magul Maduwa (Royal Audience Hall), Meda Wasala (Queens’ Palace), Palle Wasala (King’s Harem Quarters) and Ulpange (Queen’s Bathing Pavilion), together with the Temple of the Tooth.

A replica of the Royal Audience hall of Kandy was constructed in granite in Colombo in 1948 to commemorate Sri Lanka’s Independence from the British.

Kandy / Nuwara Eliya / Kandy

Breakfast at the hotel and Leave for Nuwara Eliya, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and salubrious climate of the upcountry. En-route visit a tea factory, Sita Amman kovil, Hanuman temple, and Ashok Vatika.

The Hill Country of Sri Lanka is a sight to behold. After the heat of the lowlands of Sri Lanka, the diversity of temperature and scenery of the highlands is incredible.

Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, and Bandarawela are three popular hill stations in Sri Lanka. Nuwara Eliya is the highest, situated over 6000 feet above sea level, and is also called “Little England”. As this is where the British built themselves a home away from home.

The winding road that leads to the hill country through tea plantations that carpet the hills to extents beyond sight, the waterfalls that meander cascading down the hills, the misty valleys, and the scenery is certainly awe-inspiring.

According to the ancient stories, Ramboda is an area, where the forces of Rama gather to fight against King Ravana. This temple was built by the Chinmaya mission of Sri Lanka and dedicated to Hanuman. This temple houses for 16 feel height statue of Hanuman.

Ashok Vatika was a garden in Lanka, the Kingdom of the demon king, Ravana, as mentioned in the Vishnu Purana and Hindu epic, Ramayana of Valmiki, and all subsequent versions, including the Ramacharitamanas written by Tulsidas, where it finds mention in the Sundar Kand. The Vatika has garden houses around it, built by Vishwakarma himself.

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 Prada Van at the center of the Ashok Vatika.
Its present location is believed to be the Hakgala Botanical Garden, the area is known as Seetha Eliya, close to the resort city of Nuwara Eliya. The Garden is situated at the base of the Hakgala Rock forms and has Sita Pokuna, a barren area atop the Hakgala Rock Jungle, where Sita was supposedly held captive, the 'Sita Amman Temple is located here. Another site where Sita bathed in a stream at Sita Eliya, is called Sita Jharna. The site has attracted media interest owing to its connection with Hindu mythology, in recent years.

Visit a Tea Plantation and a Tea Factory en route. Sri Lanka is famous for its “Ceylon Tea” has added cheers to many the world over for more than a century.


The place, where Sita stayed in India was similar to Nuwara Eliya with a cool climate and beautiful surroundings. Therefore, king, Ravana took her to Nuwara Eliya, where she was permitted to go about freely. The place she stayed came to be known as Seethaeliya. A beautiful Hindu temple was built at a later period where Queen Seetha was held. Earlier the temple was known as “Seetha” kovil and it is called “Seedai Amman” at present. The Hindus make vows at the temple since they believe that there is a miraculous power in it.

  1. Chandra:

    If I could give this tour and specifically Amara more stars I would. I booked the tour hoping to visit Ramayana places mentioned in the description, and must say that the trip was much more than that! I got to tour the Sri Lanka hill country and I can’t believe how beautiful it is. Totally different compared to beach areas. Thanks to Amara I learn about the history of Sri Lanka and its relationship to Ramayana. Amara was so friendly and genuine that I felt comfortable enough to keep a conversation going for many hours. The way that he navigates the Sri Lankan roads is incredible and I was so glad that I had done this tour. 11/10 stars!

  7. Janny:

    Last week we took the trip with great excitement of spending a 4 days Sri Lanka Ramayana tour! With great friends and great experience, the first time out in a long time, what could go wrong? Unfortunately, Srimal was either rusty from too many months off, or maybe having a bad day. Srimal is personable and knowledgeable about his country, but the Ramayan tour felt like it was put together on the fly. Most of the places we intended to stop were either closing or were closed. There was no planning for a place to sit and enjoy local food. Places were visited according to his tastes, not according to introducing us to on the trip.
