Breakfast at the hotel. Leave for Munneswaram temple in Chilaw. It is believed that Munneswaram predates the Ramayana.
Lord Rama after his victorious battle left for Ayodhya in one of King Ravana’s Vimanas. He felt he was being followed by a Bramhaasthi dosham as he had killed King Ravana who was a Brahmin. Whilst passing over the area, Rama noticed that the “Brahmaasthi Dosham” was not following him.
He stops the Vimana at this juncture and asks God Shiva for a remedy. God Shiva blessed Lord Rama and advised installing and praying for four lingams, as the only remedy to get rid of the dosham. Munneswaram is open from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (closed from 2 to 5 p.m.).
Proceed to Manaveri. Manavari is the first lingam installed and prayed by Lord Rama and till date this lingam is called as Ramalinga Shivan. Rameshwaram is the only other lingam in the world named after Lord Rama. The Temple is open from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon & from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Breakfast at the hotel. Leave Kandy for Mahiyanganaya. Enroute visit Laggala
The cartels behind the Dunuvila lake are called Laggala which when translated into English gives us the meaning target rock. Laggala served as a sentry point to the King Ravana’s army and it was from this rock the first Glimpse of Lord Rama’s army was sighted and informed to King Ravana. This hill is geographically the highest part of the northern region of King Ravana’s city and on a clear day the north east side that is Thiru Koneshwaran and north west side that is Talai mannar could be seen even today. King Ravana is believed to have done meditation on this rock and prayed Lord shiva at Thiru Koneshwaran from this point.
Also visit Dunivila, Yalangala .
Dunuwilla is the place from where Lord Rama fired the brahmaastharam at King Ravana, which eventually killed him. Dhunu means arrow and Vila Means Lake. This place got its name because Lord Rama fired his arrow from this lake.
Yalangala -This is situated in the Mahiyanganaya – Wasgamuwa road.
King Ravana’s body after his death was kept upon this rock Yahangala meaning bedrock. His body was kept here for his countrymen to pay their last respects to their dear departed king. Geographically this rock is visible from miles away on its 3 sides
Dinner and overnight at the Mahiyanganaya/Wasgamuwa hotel.

Divurumpola means a‘place of oath’. This is the place where Sita devi underwent the “Agni” test. She came unscathed and proved her innocence and purity. Today the temple is revered for the oath taken by Sitadevi and even the legal system permits and accepts the swearing done at this temple while settling disputes between parties.
