A geographically interesting narrow isthmus which carries the railway and the A9 road into Jaffna and was of strategic importance militarily during the Civil War between the Sri Lankan forces and the Tamil Tigers. As such it has now become a war memorial. There is a small restaurant with reasonable toilets, maintained by the Army. The modernised railway station is nearby. In spite of the name there are no elephants on the pass itself.

Well worth a stop and to spend 30 minutes to read about the national war hero and to visit his memorial to his heroic actions. A true hero fell.

As you pass through, given its importance as the main link between the Jaffna peninsula and the mainland, you are busy clicking away!

The whole A9 experience was amazing. Elephant pass to me came live after all those years of reading of it and washing it in the news. This place holds significance for the millennials of Sri lanka.
