Munneshwaram – Is a temple complex of three shrines. The 1500-year-old inner sanctum of the main Siva temple has Tamil inscriptions and is an important pilgrimage centre. August is the main festival period. The temple is believe to pre-date Ramayana and is a dedicated to Lord Siva. It is believed that a Shiva Lingam was already here when lord Rama visited the place. Lord Rama after his victorious battle against King Ravana left for Ayodhya (India) with Sita Devi in ones of King Ravan‘s Vimanas. He believed he was being followed by a demon force, as he was feeling the force having killed King Ravana, who was of Brahmin blood.

When the demon was passing over Munneswaram, Lord Rama felt it vibrating, and realised the “Brahmaasthi Dosham”. He asks God Shiva for a remedy. God Shiva blessed Lord Rama and advised installing and praying for four lingams at Manavari, Thiru Koneshwaram, Thiru Ketheshwaram and Rameshwaram in India, as the only remedy to get rid of the dosham. The first Lingam was installed at Manavari about 5 Km from Munneswaran, near the banks of Deduru Oya.

En route visit the Koneshwaram temple at Swami Rock, Trincomalee

Swami Rock and Konesvaram Temple are built on a cliff high above the sea. The modern Hindu Konesvaram Temple, one of the five most sacred saivites sites in Sri Lanka, stands at the farthest end of the Swami Rock in the place of the original. The temple of Koneswaram is believed to be surrounded by the legend on Ramayana as the legendary hero-king Rama. Koneswaram was developed in the post classical era, between 300 CE and 1600 CE by kings of the Tamil Pandyan and Chola empires, and Vannimai chiefs of the Eastern Province, with decorations and structural additions such as its famous thousand pillared hall furnished by kings of the Tamil Pallava dynasty and the Jaffna kingdom.

This culminated in Koneswaram becoming one of the most important surviving buildings of the classical Dravidian architectural period by the early 1600s. In 1624 CE, the Konewaram temple was largely destroyed by the Portuguese colonials who practically bulldozed the entire temple into the sea. Hindus built a successor temple at a nearby site in 1632 CE – the Ati Konanayakar temple in nearby Tampalakamam – to house some of the destroyed temple‘s idols, where they are now worshiped. In the 1950s, the ruins of the temple were discovered underwater beside Swami Rock by divers and rebuilt. Only a couple of stone pillars from the original temple have survived.
