Kanniya Hot Springs, Trincomalee
(1.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Experience everyday local tradition and take a bath in the holy waters of Kanniya Hot Springs. The earliest references to this site date back to the Ravana period, over 5,000 years ago. Today, locals who wish to benefit from the water's medicinal properties visit the wells. Step onto the tile floor and find seven man-made square-shaped wells, each no more than waist-deep. Grab a bucket, scoop out some water (sourced from natural springs below), and take a bath the local way. Notice that each of the wells varies slightly in temperature. Arrange to visit Kanniya Hot Springs and other attractions in Trincomalee using our Trincomalee travel itinerary maker.
