As you know in the Ramayana epic, Sita Devi was taken to Sri Lanka by its ancient King Ravana using his peacock flight. As per the request of Lord Rama, Hanuman went on searching for Sita Devi and found her in Srilanka jungle under the custody of King Ravana. Then lord Hanuman came back to India and informed it to Lord Rama. Then Lord Rama made a bridge to Sri Lanka through the sea from India and came to Sri Lanka and made war against King Ravana and killed him and recaptured his wife Sita Devi.
Still there are many places in Sri Lanka that are related to Ramayana epic. For example a place is there next to the river on a mountain area which is called as Sita Eliya where history says that Sita was kept in prison in this Asoka vanam. Now there is a temple for the Sita Amman along with Lord Rama, Luxshmana, and Hanuman too. There are small and large foot imprints on the near by the rocks where people believe these were of Hanuman when he expanded his body to look bigger.
Muneswaram Sivan Temple is another important place, where Rama worshiped Shiv Linga to get rid of Brammahaththi Dosam that came on him for killing the King Ravana who was a devotee of the Lord Shiva.
Near to this Muneswaram Temple is the place Manavari Temple where Lord Rama crated his own Shiv Lingam to worship and named it as Rama Lingam. This is the one and only Ramalingam being worshiped out side of India. In India the Ramalingam is worshiped in the Rameswaram temple.
Another important place is Kelaniya Buddhist Temple, here you can see the artful details on how King Ravana's Brother Vibeeshnan was crowned as the king of Lanka.
