Visit Munneshwaram Temple.
After his victorious battle, lord Rama left for Ayodhya, in one of king Ravan’s vimana(carriages). He felt he was being followed by bramhaasthi dosham as he had killed king Ravana who was a Brahmin. Legend has it that when he came to his place he felt bramhaasthi dosham was not following him and he stopped the vimana and ask god shiva for remedy. Lord Shiva blessed Lord Rama and advised him to install four lingams there and pray to get rid of the dosham. Since then many hindu devotees flock to the Temple.
Thereafter proceed to Mannavari Temple (20 min drive)
Manaweri Temple is the first lingam installed and prayed to by Lord Rama and this lingam is also called Ramalinga Shivan.
Transfer to Pinnawala from Chilaw.
Visit Elephant Orphanage.
The Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage provides visitors with the best chance of seeing a large number of elephants at close quarters. The orphanage was established in 1975 and commenced with seven orphaned elephants. Today some of these orphans enjoy the fortune of seeing their calfs born in the same location. Assisted by local and foreign elephant experts, Pinnawela commenced a successful captive breeding programme and the first baby elephant was born in 1984. It is most interesting to visit at feeding time to see the baby elephants being bottle fed and the entire herd taken for a bath thereafter to the river near by.
