Holiday Destination Northern Destinations


Jaffna is a historically and culturally significant city in Sri Lanka's northwestern region. Despite being extensively impacted by the Sri Lankan Civil War, it is the capital of the Northern Province and has a rich legacy, distinct culture, and a tenacious character.

Jaffna is located in northern Sri Lanka, some 400 kilometers (250 miles) north of the capital city of Colombo. The Jaffna Lagoon separates it from the rest of Sri Lanka, and it is the largest city in the Northern Province.

Jaffna is noted for its strong cultural origins and is regarded the cultural hub of Sri Lanka's Tamil ethnic community. Numerous temples, churches, and historical landmarks highlight the city's rich history and tradition. A notable cultural monument is the Nallur Kandaswamy Temple, a renowned Hindu temple famed for its magnificent festivities.

Jaffna is well-known for its particular cuisine, which includes a wide range of vegetarian and seafood meals. Popular foods include Jaffna crab curry, string hoppers (idiyappam), and unusual desserts like as "Jaffna ice cream."
