After Breakfast at Hotel in Negombo proceed to Chilaw ( Approx 45 kms).. Chilaw is a large town in Puttalam District , North western province Sri Lanka.
Visit the famous Muneeshwaram Temple.
Lord Rama after his victorious battle left for Ayodhya in one of King Ravana’s vimana’s. He felt he was being followed by bramhaasthi dosham as he had killed King Ravana who was a Brahmin. He stops the vimana at this juncture because he felt at this place the “Brahmaasthi Dosham” was not following him. He ascends from the vimana and asks God Shiva for a remedy. God Shiva blessed Lord Rama and advised installing and praying four lingams at Manavari, Thiru Koneshwaram, Thiru Ketheshwaram and Rameshwaram in India, as the only remedy to get rid of the dosham.
Thereafter visit Manavari Temple.
Manavari is situated on the Chilaw – Puttalam road about 10 km from Chilaw. Manavari is the first lingam installed and prayed by Lord Rama and till date this lingam is called as Ramalinga Shivan. Rameshwaram is the only other lingam in the world named after Lord Rama.
