5 Places Which Prove the Ramayana Actual Happened www.stena.ee

A land of immense naturally heritage and a rich culture, Sri Lanka is also a place that hides places and legends that are linked to the Ramayana, one of India's most important mythical literatures. Reading the Ramayana and visiting these iconic sites one can easily see the connection, whether the capture of Sita, or the battlefields where mighty armies clashed, or Raavana's palace that Hanuman burned down or the ultimate war where Rama slew Raavana.
