The place where Sita was held captive in the Ramayana Epic.

A remarkable religious and historic structure, Seetha Amman Kovil (Temple) is located amidst the misty mountains and tall pine trees. A striking and sculptured temple, it is said to be the place where Sita was held captive by Ravana according to the Ramayana story. The legend says that, Lord Hanuman, who was sent to save the captivated queen, Sita first spotted her at this temple. Here, you will be able to see footprints that are believed to be of Lord Hanuman and apart from the occasional poojas you can also see the colourful and festive celebration of ‘Rama Navami’ every March 28th.
