This area is related to the long epic poem “Ramayana” in Hinduism.
According to the Hindu epic Ramayana, Rāvaṇa is depicted and described as having ten heads and twenty hands. He is described as a follower of Shiva, a great scholar, a capable ruler and a maestro of the veena (ancient Indian stringed instrument), but he wished to overpower the deities.
Rāvaṇa is the primary antagonist in the Hindu epic Ramayana, where he is depicted as the king of island called Lanka.
According to the folklore, the mighty demon king Ravana kidnapped the princess Seetha who was the queen of Rama and hid her in the place where the temple now is.
After the Seetha Amman Temple, left Nuwara Eliya for next destination Galle, Southern Province, Sri Lanka.
