Although Ramayana is believed to have happened many years ago, it has geographical traces from North to South India, and more specifically in Sri Lanka.

Apart from Rama Setu (Adam’s bridge) between Dhanuskodi and Sri Lanka, one can find many sites.

According to Valmiki Ramayana, Ravana brought Seetha Devi from India in a Pushpaka Vimana which is widely known in Sri Lanka as the “Dandu Monara Yanthranaya,” or Large Peacock Machine in Sinhala.

Few people do not like to believe that the present Sri Lanka is the Lanka mentioned in the Ramayana, but we find that there is still much convincing tradition therein and many sites identified with the Ramayana’s Sundara Kanda and Yuddha Kanda.

There are more than 50 sites in Sri Lanka, which are mentioned in Ramayana, from the place of Seetha’s captivity to the battlefields where both armies clashed, to the groves of exotic herbs dropped by Hanuman, to the ultimate place of war where Lord Rama slew Ravana, the ten-headed demon-king.

An oath taken at the spot where Sita Devi undertook “Agni Pariksha” is still considered valid in village courts or grama sabhas.

The color of the soil of the ancient battlefield is still red today, and is still surrounded by lighter colored earth. One of the airports of Ravana, torched by Hanuman when he came looking for Seetha, still has a scorched-earth look.

Exotic alpine Himalayan species are found suddenly amidst tropical Sri Lankan vegetation, the legacy of Hanuman’s heroic voyage carrying a mountain with life-restoring herbs called Sanjeevani.

What is more incredible is that the names of places have come down to modern times unchanged.

Ravana, using a golden deer as a decoy, visited Seetha when she was alone. In the guise of an old sage, he abducted and brought her to Weragantota in Lanka in his plane, the Pushpaka vimana.

Weragantota means the “place of aircraft landing” in Sinhala. This is the first place Seetha was brought to Lankapura (capita city of king Ravana). These jungles are the place where the city of Lankapura once stood. The city had a beautiful palace for Queen Mandodari surrounded by waterfalls, streams and varieties of flora and fauna. Seetha was kept at Queen Mandodari’s palace at Lankapura.

Place Sita was held captive is called Seetha Kotuwa, which means “Seetha’s Fort” in Sinhala.

Ravana had an aircraft repair center at Gurulupotha close to Seetha Kotuwa.
In Valmiki’s depiction, King Ravana’s vimana resembled a huge peacock. The vimana in Sinhala language means “Dhandu Monara” which is known as “flying peacock,” and hence the name Gurulupotha, which means “parts of birds” in Sinhala. This is also called Gavagala.

After Ravana’s death, his body was kept at Yahangala, meaning “Bed Rock” in Sinhala. This is situated along the Mahiyanganaya – Wasgamuwa road. King Ravana’s body was kept upon this rock so his countrymen could pay their last respects to their dear departed king. Geographically this rock is visible from miles away on its 3 sides.

Seetha met Rama after the war, and at Divurumpola, she under went the “Agni” test of fire where she proved her innocence and purity to Rama. Divurumpola means the “Place of Oath” in Sinhala. She came out unscathed to proved her innocence and purity.
Vantharamulai is a place that Lord Rama, Seetha, Lakshmana, and Hanuman rested after the turmoil of the war. Amaranthakali is the place where they had the first meal after the war.

Rama installed first Siva Lingam at Munneswaram, to get rid of ‘Brahma Hatya Dosham‘ (killing of a brahmin Ravana).
This was done at Manavari about 5 Km from Munneswaram, near the banks of Deduru Oya.

In addition to above, there are many Ramayana sites in Sri Lanka like :
Thotupolakanda (“Mountain Port” in Sinhala) at Horton plains
Weragantota (“Place of Aircraft” landing in Sinhala) in Mahiyangana
Ussangoda (“Area of Lift” in Sinhala) in the Southern coast
Wariapola (“Aircraft Port” in Sinhala) in Matale and Kurunagala.
