  • The highest kovil in sri lanka
  • Keerimalai Naguleswaram temple (Tamil: கீரிமலை நகுலேஸ்வரம் கோயில்), historically known also as the Thirutambaleswaram Kovil of Keerimalai, is a famous Hindu temple in Keerimalai, located north of Jaffna, Northern Province, Sri Lanka near the ancient port of Kankesanthurai. One of the oldest shrines of the region, it is the northernmost shrine on the island of the five ancient Iswarams of Lord Siva, venerated by Hindus across the world from classical antiquity. Its adjacent water tank, the Keerimalai Springs, is believed to have curative properties.
  • The famous temple in Jaffna
  • Beautiful but half destroyed temple with clear beaches around. Loved this place. Its sad that human beings have destroyed this place to the extent possible. I wanted to check out KKS too, but heard that its an inaccessible place as it was a high security zone. Loved north of Sri Lanka for all its beauty!
  • Nice place to visit while in Jaffna.
