Sita waka


Closer to Avissawella

An interesting as well as shocking took here. To shatter Lord Rama’s confidence and halt his progress during the war, Indrajith eldest son of King Ravana played a trick, with Sitadevi’s look alike. Indrajith beheaded the look alike in front of Lord Hanuman thinking that it will stop the advancing forces of Lord Rama. There is a stone in this area called “Rampatha” with one foot mark which is believed by the people as Lord Rama’s foot mark. This place is known as Sita Waka
