The name refers to a site of historical and archaeological significance that is dominated by a massive

Culavamsa, this site was selected by King Kasyapa (477 – 495 CE) for his new capital. He built his palace
on the top of this rock and decorated its sides with colourful frescoes. On a small plateau about halfway
up the side of this rock he built a gateway in the form of an enormous lion. The name of this place is
derived from this structure —S?h?giri, the Lion Rock. The capital and the royal palace was abandoned
after the king's death. It was used as a Buddhist monastery until the 14th century.

8 th Day – Ella.
After an early breakfast leave for Gavagala (Ghoshala). King Ravana had his dairy farm here. Milk was air
lifted to the capital Lankapura from here using Vimana’s (Mythical flying chariot). The stone pillars here
have the worn out marks cast by constant use of tying ropes on them.
Thereafter leave for Seeta Amman Kovil “A Temple for Lord Rama, Sita Devi, Luxshmana, and Hanuman.
There is a stream by the side of the temple where Sitadevi is said to have bathed. It is interesting to note
that foot prints akin to Lord Hanuman’s are found by this river, some of which are of small size and some
large size. This demonstrates the immense power of Hanuman who was able to transform himself to any
size.
On completion leave for the Divrumpola Temple. Although this temple is said to be established in the
6th A.D. (Polonnaruwa period) it is thought that it has been started during the time of Rama, Ravana and
Sita. Still revered by thousands, this holy haven was the place where Sita performed her ‘Agni Parishka’
(proving her chastity) to her husband Rama. It is said that this place was given the name Divurumpola
which means a place for making a vow. This name is seen inscribed in the moonstone guarding the
Devale (Temple).
Later proceed to Istripura which in Sinhalese language means, an area of women. This was one of the
locations to which King Ravana shifted Sitadevi. This was a precautionary measure which he was forced
to take due to the advent of Lord Hanuman. Head for Ella on completion.
Overnight Stay: A Hotel in Ella.

9 th Day – Ella.
After breakfast at the hotel visit the Ravana cave in Ella. Ella is a small mountain near Bandarawela, and
boasts three locations linked to the Ramayana where, local legend dictates, Ravana hid Sita. First there
is the Ravana Ella Cave situated in the massive Ella Rock. Then there is Ravana Ella Falls and a nearby
pool bored out of the rock by the gushing waters where Sita is said to have bathed. The tunnels in the
Ravana cave prove beyond doubt the architectural brilliance of King Ravana. These tunnels served as a
quick means of transport through the hills and also as a secret passage. These tunnels networked all the
important cities, airports and dairy farms. A close look at these tunnels indicates that they are man-
made and not natural formations.
Overnight Stay: A Hotel in Ella.

10 th Day – Munneswaram and Negombo.
After breakfast leave for Munneswaram. It is believed that Munneswaram predates the Ramayana and a
temple dedicated to Lord Shiva was located here. Munneswaram means the first temple for Shiva
(Munnu + Easwaran). A Shiva Lingam was already here when lord Rama visited the place. Lord Rama
after his victorious battle left for Ayodya with Sita in one of King Ravana’s Vimana’s,
He felt he was being followed by “Bramhaasthi Dosham” (a malevolent black shadow) as he had killed
King Ravana who was a Brahmin. When the Vimana was passing over Munneswaram he felt the Vimana
vibrating and realized that the Dosham was not following him at this particular point. He stopped the
Vimana at this juncture asked God Shiva for a remedy. God Shiva blessed Lord Rama and advised
installing and praying for four lingams at Manavari, ThiruKoneswaran, ThiruKetheswaram and
Rameshwaram in India as the only remedy to get rid of the dosham.
Overnight Stay: A Hotel in Negombo.
