More tourists are visiting the Ramayana sites in Sri Lanka. During the month of January there were two groups, one group comprising 400 tourists and the other 150 tourists that visited the sites, stated the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority.

It also said another group comprising of 250 tourists from India has planned to visit, from 17th to 19th of April 2011.

The Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority also said that Sri Lanka has more than 50 Ramayana sites from the place of Seetha Devi's captivity to the battlefields where vast armies clashed, to the groves of exotic herbs dropped by the monkey god Hanuman, to the ultimate theatre of war where Lord Rama slew Ravana, the ten-headed demon-king.
