Day 3 of this Ramayana Tour in Sri Lanka is reserved for an excursion to several Ramayana related sites located around Kandy. These are the sites where the battle between Rama and Ravana occurred. We will embark on the excursion after breakfast.

Our first stop is at Dunuwila - this is the site from where Prince Rama shot the fatal Brahmastra - weapon from Lord Brahma that led to the demise of the Demon King Ravana.

Our second stop on today's Ramayana Tour is Laggala. Laggala is the site, where Ravana fell after being hit by the Brahmastra. It was the highest point in the region and Ravana was directing the war from this point.

Our third stop is at Yahangala - the site, where Ravana's body was laid out to enable his countrymen to pay their last respects. Later, our Ramayana tour moves on to Weragantota, the site where Ravana's vaahan or aircraft first landed with the abducted Princess Sita in captivity.

Moving on, we arrive at Sita Kotuwa, the place where Princess Sita was first held captive before being moved to Ashok Vatika. Sita Kotuwa was originally the palace of Queen Mandothari, the wife of King Ravana. After the palace was used to hold Princess Sita captive, it came to be known as Sita's Fortress - Sita Kotuwa and is now an important stopping point on Ramayana tours in Sri Lanka.

Before returning to Kandy, we will stop at Gurulupotha Lankapura, a site that was once the repairing centre for King Ravana'a vimanas - aircraft. Have lunch and return to Kandy, where we visit the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, an important Buddhist pilgrimage site before returning to the hotel. Overnight in Kandy
