Bhakta Hanuman Temple – The Sri Lanka branch of the Chinmaya mission, commi ed to promo ng the Ramayana philosophy as well as Ramayana Trail pilgrimages, has built a temple with Hanuman as a presiding deity in Ramboda at the Kandy to Nuwara Eliya main road. There is a new five meters tall granite statue of Rama’s devote supporter. Hanuman is believed to have started his searching for Sita in the Baroda hills. Hanuman tradi onally was not as popular among Sri Lankan Tamil devotees as he indeed is in India, because he devastated parts of the island with his burning tail.

The Tamil word for Ramboda, Rampadai, means & Rama’s force, this is why Ramboda is believed the area where Rama collected his troops.
