Nallur Kandaswamy Kovil Jun 08, 2013
This temple can easily be reach by the bicycle and located approximately 2km northeast of the city centre. This is the most impressive religious building in Jaffna and one of the most significant Hindu temple complexes in Sri Lanka. The good part is free entrée to the temple in all of north of Sri Lanka and not like other part of Sri Lanka where you have to pay high fee to enter inside the building.

Its sacred deity, Murugan or Skanda, is central to temple activity, especially during the punctual, cacophonic pujas (5am, 10am, noon, 4pm and 5pm), when offerings are made to his brass-framed image and other Hindu deities like Ganesh, Murugan’s elephant-headed brother, in shrines surrounding the inner sanctum. The kovil current structure dated from the 1734 (15th century).
