5 such places still exist in Sri Lanka which fully proves the truth of Ramayana


We are all aware of the stories of Lord Rama recorded in Ramayana. Many generations have grown up reading or listening to his story. Then many serials and films based on Ramayana have also been made, but there is always a doubt about how real the stories and events narrated in this epic are. So did Lord Ram really fight Ravana after crossing the vast sea? However, there are many pieces of evidence of these incidents in our religious literature and they are more important than those stories. However, it is surprising that 5 such places still exist in Sri Lanka which fully proves the truth of Ramayana.

1 - Goddess Sita was placed at three different places by Lankapati Ravana.

According to Ramayana, after Sita Haran, Ravana first placed Goddess Sita in a cave here and the entrance of that cave was exactly like the head of King Cobra Snake. But later when Sita refused to stay there, she was transferred to Ashoka Vatika. The place under which Sita used to sit in Ashoka Vatika is famous as Sita Eliya.

In 2007, the Sri Lankan government claimed through a discovery that Ashoka Vatika is actually Sita Eliya. Goddess Sita was transferred from Ashoka Vatika to Kattu Gala after Hanuman burnt Lanka. According to the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka, during the excavation in that place, many such caves were found which go directly to the palace of Ravana.

Every person with a belief in Hinduism will be familiar with the Sanjeevani herb and it was the same medicine that saved the life of Lakshman, younger brother of Lord Rama. Although this herb is found only in the Himalayas, but its association in Sri Lanka further proves the truth of the Ramayana.

According to the Sundar Kand chapter in the Ramayana, Lanka was protected by a huge elephant, which was slaughtered by Hanuman during the war. The archaeological department of the country has found evidence of the remains of such elephants here. Whose characteristics are very similar to those described in the epic, while they are quite different from real elephants, which are found in that country and other places around it.

According to the investigation of the archaeological department, the remains of the ancient palace found in the excavation here are of the time of Ravana. When Ravana set fire to Hanuman's tail, Hanuman burned the entire area there due to which the land there turned black. The remains found in the excavation here also confirm this and there is an 82 feet waterfall which is found in the Kelani River, a little away from the palace. According to the epic Vibhishana was made the king of Lanka after the death of Ravana. Here he built his palace on the banks of river Kelani. The palace remains of archaeologists on the banks of the river are not far from the palace of Ravana.
