  • The new part is further up diligently. Currently, you can see them the pillars except be plastered and the decorations inside are drawn. The new temple liked very much, if interesting are also the remains of the old part. Certainly a Pearl is destroyed there. As in every Hindu temple photography is prohibited inside, men go bare-chested and shoes will be stripped out.

Where to stay in Jaffna

Jaffna offers a scattered few accommodations for its visitors. They primarily take the form of guesthouses, with some more refined as well as some very basic options on the major boulevards and side streets close to the station. Take a peek close to the main green areas in town for some standard, purpose-built hotels, with larger rooms and a few more amenities. Alternatively, look around the peninsula for some more rural places to stay, primarily located near the coast.
