Overbuilt temple. Does not have the feeling of buddhist practitioners living there. Political temple.

A must visit if you go to Jaffna Considered a most sacred place to visit of persons with any religion Do not visit on public holidays Just too crowded Unless you are happy to hire a private boat like we did for the day

One of 16 most sacred Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka. It is believed that the lord Buddha visited this place to resolve a conflict between two rulers of the island. The monks of this temple had gone through immense of hardships to protect this place during the civil war. In the temple museum you can find lot of information regarding this. Since it is located in a small island separated from the main land it has an added additional value. You need to take a boat from the kurikadduwan jetty to reach here. Boats operate regularly and it take about 20 mins for the ride. Ticket is 40 rupees one way. They load a lot of people per boat, so don’t expect any comfort. Boat will drop you at the temple jetty. But to take the return boat you need to walk or take a tuk towards the jetty near the Hindu kovil which is about 1km away.
