Sri Seetha Amman temple is a unique temple it has been made at the place where Seeta Mata spent her days in the prison of Ravana aproximately 5000 years ago. It is also unique in a way that it is one of the very few temples dedicated to Seeta.
The temple is located on Nuwara Eliya Kandy road very close to the scenic town of Nuwara Elia.
The temple is located in the village of Seetha Eliya (also known as Sita Eliya). This place is believed to be the site where Sita was held captive by (Vikram) king Ravana, and where she prayed daily for Rama to come and rescue her in the Hindu epic, Ramayana. On the rock face across the stream are circular depressions said to be the footprints of Rawana’s elephant.
