  • It appears that water is Black color but its due to the deepness. There is clean water. There are historic rumors behind. 
  • A huge and a very dark well but it's sad to see people/visitors littering up this place with plastic bags and other things. 
  • Situated along the Puttur road in Jaffna and flanked by a modern Sivan Kovil, the Nilavarai Bottomless Well showed no signs of its unique existence. If a visitor were unaware of its location, they might probably pass right by it due to its unremarkable surroundings. However, this was not to be the case as our search for the Well proved to be quite easy with the place abuzz with people, much to our surprise.
  • Historical place, most closely related with Lord Rama's pastimes
