Sita waka

Location:

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
