After she refused to stay in Ravana's magnificent palace she was transferred to AshokVatika or Ashokavanam where she lived under Ashoka trees. It was here that Ravana's wife Mandodari visited her and that Hanuman met her for the first time, identifying himself with the finger ring of Rama. We continue the trail today visiting  the Divurumpola Temple.This is the place where Seetha Devi underwent “Agni Pariksha” (test). It is a popular place of worship among locals in this area.
