Jaffna Tourism

Jaffna is probably Sri Lanka’s most historical city located at the northern tip on the country and the city from time to time had been passed under the rule of various kingdoms, governments and the armies.

Unlike the country’s southern parts which are more influenced and in a way controlled by the Buddhist and the Sinhalese, the northern realms including Jaffna have a strong influence of the Tamil and the Hindu cultures. Historically, it was the centre of the LTTE power struggle to capture the city in 1995 which resulted in the devastating Battle of Jaffna.

The city has been through a lot, but still today it flourishes as one of the industrial cities of the country of Sri Lanka. The town of Jaffna’s main revenues are from tourism and the port business. The city, due to being under the rule of various kingdoms and governments has several monuments for its visitors, each reciting a different yet alluring tale.

Some of its monuments include the Jaffna Fort, the Jaffna public library, Jaffna Palace ruins, the Nallur Kandaswamy temple and much more.
