Sri Lanka has launched its state-of-the-art project, “Sri Ramayan Trails,” at Taj Samudra in Colombo yesterday, as reported by Wego. The project aims to boost tourism by captivating Hindu pilgrims and travelers.

The launch event marks a milestone in Indo-Sri Lankan history, reinforcing their ties. It was graced by Swami Govind Dev Giri Maharaj, the Chief Treasurer of the renowned Sri Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, and Mr. Sagala Ratnayaka, Senior Advisor to the President on National Security and Chief of Presidential Staff. 


The Ramayana stands as one of ancient India’s two principal Sanskrit epics and holds significant importance as a foundational text in Hinduism. Sri Lanka houses 52 sites along the Ramayana Trail. Sri Ramayan Trails intends to signify nine of these sites scattered throughout the country.

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies are purported to play a crucial role in this project. Through these technologies, ancient spiritual events associated with these esteemed sites will be brought to life, offering stunning and immersive experiences to visitors. The pilgrimage venture spans from Adam’s Bridge in the Mannar Basin to Seetha Eliya in Nuwara Eliya, encompassing every location mentioned in the epic Ramayana, meticulously selected for inclusion.

By providing a spiritual and cultural odyssey for both Hindu pilgrims and travelers, the initiative endeavors to attract millions of Indian and international tourists to the country.
