The Sri Lankan tourism department has identified about 50 sites (temples, caves, gardens, mountains and heritage sites) that are said to be connected to the Ramayana that tells the tale of the Hindu god Rama, whose wife Sita was kidnapped by Ravana and taken to ‘sone ki Lanka’, or the golden kingdom of Lanka.

The Ramayana is one of the longest epic poems in Hinduism, with more than 24,000 verses. Although its precise origins are unclear, the poet Valmiki is generally credited with writing the Ramayana in the 5th century B.C.

The word "Ramayana", literally means "the march (ayana) of Rama" in search of human values.
