Excursion to Horton Plains

Worlds End

Horton Plains – the beautiful gift of nature – is situated along the eastern periphery of the main range of the anchor-shaped central hills of Sri Lanka. At 2100 – 2300 meters above sea level, it is Sri Lanka’s most elevated National Park containing the Kirigalpotta and Totapola Mountains, which are the second and third highest mountain peaks of Sri Lanka (2395 and 2359 metres respectively).

Endemic flora such Rhododenron, Calophylum, Chimono bambosa and fauna such as the rare Sri Lanka Whistling Thrush (Arenga), Sri Lanka Wood Pigeon, Sri Lanka Bush Warbler, the Rhino-horned Lizard, and many other species such as Sambar, Bear Monkey and Otter can be spotted easily here. It is also the only national park within which visitors are permitted to walk.

Situated within this park, at nearly 700m, is World’s End, a sheer precipice that is popular with visitors. The World’s End offers a spectacular panoramic view, including an uninhibited view of the Nonpareil Tea Estate. Also within the Park is Baker’s falls, which is quite small but an exquisite waterfall nevertheless.

Seetha Amman temple, Seetha Eliya

Seetha Amman Temple

another place related to folklore is the Hindu Temple called "Seetha Kovil" (Hanuman Kovil). It is found on the way to Badulla from Nuwara Eliya before reaching the Hakgala Botanical Garden. The temple is located in the village called "Seetha Eliya". The area is related to the Ramayana story in Hinduism. Folklore says that the mighty king Ravana kidnapped princess Seeta who was the queen of Rama and hid her in the place where the temple now is.

The stream that runs from the hill, catered to the needs of Sitadevi during her stay at Ashok Vatika. She is said to have bathed in this stream. About a century ago of three idols were discovered in the stream, one of which was that of Sita. It is believed that the idols have been worshipped at this spot for centuries.

Now there is temple for Lord Rama, Sitadevi, Luxshmana, and Hanuman by the side of this stream. It is interesting to note that foot prints akin to Lord Hanuman's are found by this river and some are of small size and some are of large size, which tells us of the immense powers of hanuman transforming himself into any size.
