Ramayana Tour of Sri Lanka

Ramayana Tour 

Sri Lanka is famous among Hindu devotees as the land of the Demon King Ravana. The Hindu epic, the Ramayana dwells on the beauty and splendour of Sri Lanka, for Ravana was said to be a rich king, the brother of Kubera, the treasurer of the Gods. Ravana was deemed a great and good king by his own subjects and it is said that he is depicted with 10 heads, not because he was some kind of monster but because he had knowledge worthy of filling 10 heads. Yet all his knowledge, power and achievements had failed to remove his basic desire for women, legend says. With over an estimated 50 sites in Sri Lanka, connected to the Ramayana lore, it is no wonder that this tour is in great demand. The Trail of Ramayana’ is based on research findings that link the sites to Lord Ram, wife Sita and demon king Ravana.
