Location


What you can do

An important regional Hindu temple complex in Sri Lanka, which has been in existence at least since 1000 CE, although myths surrounding the temple associate it with the popular Indian epic Ramayana. The temple is one of the ancient Pancha Ishwarams dedicated to Shiva in the region. Munishwaram means the first temple for Shiva (Munnu + Easwaran). It is believed that the Shiva Lingam was already here when Lord Rama visited this place.
