Please pray and experience your Lord Siva. Before you go there please read all about it. Watch all the old building and think about what happened in time.

One of the most important Shivan temple in Sri Lanka. You should take a bath first from the sacred pond then you should attend the pooja at the temple. You can take the morning train from Jaffna station and get down from the Mavattipuram station....More

It is an old kovil, which had been destroyed. Reconstruction of the kovil is underway. It is purely a religious place but you could check out peacocks and a giant cow at the backyard of the kovil, who are given foster care at this place.

Not much else in the temple. The scenery is ok, but the architecture is average. Unless you are on a pilgrimage, there is not much on offer.

As I walked in to this Kovil, I felt an amazing, strong spiritual energy. It doesn't have the glamour of Nallur, but everybody in our group felt the centuries of collective spritual sense. As we were among the first visitors for the day we were...More
