Jaffna, Jaffna Fort, Jaffna kovils, Hindu tem

Jaffna is located on the northern tip of Sri Lanka. It opened to tourism in 2009. Jaffna is situated around 400 kilometres away from the capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo, and it will take 7 hours and 45 minutes to reach Jaffna town from Colombo. This city is known as Little India in Sri Lanka because the city has a lot of influence from India; as we can see on the streets, their food and language are different from those in Central or South Sri Lanka. Most of the people in Jaffna are Tamil, and their religion is Hindu. But at present, they are throughout the country, so Sri Lanka's second main language is considered Tamil. Jaffna is mainly full of religious surroundings, so there are many Hindu temples, kovils, and Hindu god statues, just as in India. And Jaffna is highly connected with God, Rama, and Ravana. Mainly Indian tourists are visiting this place because it is considered a part of their country. It is a good off-beaten-path visit for 2 to 3 days, but remember you need some extra time. In ancient times, it was said that there was a bridge from Jaffna to Point Pedro to reach south India. Even geographically, it says true. 
The most famous sites to visit in Jaffna are:
Nallur Kandaswamy Hindu Temple
Keerimalai Pond (a natural swimming pool)
Public Library and Clock Tower
Delft Island
Nagadeepa kovil
Jaffna Fort
Keerimalai Hot Springs
Nallur Kandaswamy: It is a huge Hindu temple with golden arches and an ornate gourami tower. The star-shaped Jaffna Fort was built by the Portuguese in the 17th century and later occupied by the Dutch and British. The Jaffna Public Library is a symbol of the city's post-war regeneration.
