Best of Kandy-Nuwara Eliya (Sri Lanka)

Day 1: Airport–Chillaw–Kandy

Upon arrival in Colombo Airport , on the way Visit Chillaw, It is believed that Munishwaram predates the Ramayana and a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva was located here. Munishwaram means the first temple for Shiva (Munnu + Easwaran). A Shiva Lingam was already here when Lord Rama visited this place. Lord Rama after his victorious battle left for Ayodhya with Sita in one of King Ravana’sVimanas. He felt he was being followed by a BramhaasthiDosham (a malevolent black shadow) as he had killed King Ravana who was a Brahmin.

When the Vimana was passing over Munishwaram, he felt the Vimana vibrating, and realized the Brahmaasti Dosham was not following him at this particular point. He stopped the Vimana at this juncture and asked god Lord Shiva for advice. Lord Shiva blessed Lord Rama and advised installing and praying at four lingams located at Manavari, ThiruKoneshwaram, ThiruKetheshwaram and Rameshwaram in India as the only remedy to get rid of the dosham.

The first lingam was installed at Manavari about 5km from here, near the banks of the DeduruOya. At the Manavari Temple ChilawManavari is the first lingam installed and prayed by Rama and till date this lingam is called as Ramalinga Shivan. Rameshwaram is the only other lingam in world named after Lord Rama.

The rocky undergoes of the waterfall is Khondalite, a kind of limestone which undergoes faster decay as hard gneiss or granite. This has resulted in many caves being formed near the falls.
