This is an interesting place to visit - on the side of a hill and the view of the valley below is just incredible. This was a very quick visit with a short tour of the temple inside. Worth a stop-over on the long and winding tea plantation roads

The temple is like any other temple with the statue of Hanuman as the main feature. Outside the temple there are some very good scenic views. There is a good , clean vegetarian restaurant there with reasonable prices.

The place has very great historic importance! Lord Hanuman landed at this place first in search of Sita. Temple is located in very scenic location, with beautiful mountains surroinding! One view from temple looks like Lord Hanuman is sleeping! Temple is located en root to Nuwara eliya from Kandy! Here Indian Tamil population is seen!

Visited the beautiful Hanuman Temple which is run by Chinmaya mission. The grounds and temple are very well maintained. The evening aarti and chanting of Hanuman Challis were very powerful. Delicious vegetarian thali at the restaurant below.
