This temple is located only about 10 minutes away from the Greogory Lake in Nuwaraeliya. The Seetha Amman temple was named after the wife, Sitadevi, of Lord Rama. The structure was built on one of the exact sites where the demon king Ravana held Sita as his captive, in the Ashoka Forests of the region. It is believed that the Lordess used the stream by the temple and meditated by the rocks along the stream.One of the most interesting points of this site is the large footprint by the rocks beside the temple.
