Sri Lanka - Jaffna & the North (Chapter)
This is the Jaffna & the North chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sri Lanka guidebook.
With towering, rainbow Hindu temples, colourful saris draped effortlessly over women on bicycles and warm breezes carrying the sweet fragrance of fruit trees, the North is a different world. From the language to the cuisine to religion, Tamil culture has its own rhythms.
- marvelling at the spectacular seascapes and surreal light exploring Jaffna’s Islands
- slipping into a trance during puja (prayers) at Nallur Kandaswamy Kovil and investigating the charming market and its textiles, tropical fruit and cigars
- observing the war’s destruction of homes, temples and communities and appreciating the strength of its survivors
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Vavuniya, Mannar Island & around, Jaffna, Jaffna Peninsula, and Jaffna’s Islands.
