There is a small temple on a hill of Tawalantenne Village, it is called Shri Bhakta Hanuman Temple.
Finished climbing the stairs, there was a small temple on the small square. It is called Shri Bhakta Hanuman Temple. I did not know anything about the temple.
Shri Bhakta Hanuman (Hanuman, good worshipper of Lord Rama); Hanuman is a Hindu god and an ardent devotee of Rama. Hanuman is a central character in the Hindu epic Ramayana (Sanskrit epic poem and holy book).
Hanuman is a Vanara (a tribe of the figure of monkey in the Indian mythology). He participated in Rama’s war against the demon king Ravana. Some texts also present him as an incarnation of Lord Shiva.
From south India many poor people who did not have their own land immigrated to Sri Lanka as workers of the tea productions in 19th century. The immigrants had brought their religion, the deities in this region. They had built this magnificent temple in the course of time.
Worker in tea factary, tea pikers in a plantation and children playing on a roadside, they look happy for me. I was glad to see that they are living happy. I prayed to my God they are happy forever.
Left the Tawalantenne village, driving to the next city of Nuwara Eliy, on the way looked at a narrow mountain pass and a water fall in tea fields.
