“The Gateway to Jaffna”
Review of Elephant Pass

Elephant Pass
Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is the only place in Sri Lanka where you can see the sun rise AND the sun set! It is a thin strip of land connecting the mainland to the Jaffna Peninsula. The road was under construction in fits and starts on the way to Jaffna and a few check points as well.

The Pass has been a strategic military base since the 1700s when the Portuguese built the fort.

The man made LTTE Terrorist armoured vehicles and the bulldozer that Lance Corporal Gamini Kularathna confronted and blew up with hand grenades, thereby killing himself in the process are displayed in the area.
