“Great position - slightly strange atmosphere”
Review of Koneswaram Temple

Koneswaram Temple
Ranked #2 of 28 things to do in Trincomalee
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The temple was ok, and in a great location at the top of the promontory. It had lots of statues and colourful aspects to it, but didn't give us the same sense of reverence as some others and felt a bit unkempt.

Visit at dusk when the road is cool and the temple is animated with devotees and the sun sets over Trinco town.

This is a famous temple of lord Shiva with a big statutes of Shiva. Good devotional crowds can be seen and the view of Trinco is spectacular from the temple.

THe history of this temple dates back to 205 B.C and there is so much history to this temple. It was great feeling to finally visit a place about which i had learned a lot in the past. Definitely worth it. This temple is a hindu pilgrimage place.
