Jaffna district is located in the Northern part of Sri Lanka, it consists lot of small towns and villages. After 30 years of conflict the region is now recovering to get back to normal life. The region is surrounded by ocean and sea except the Elephant pass, the narrow connection that lies on South of it.
Touring this area is a good idea as it will offer you many attractions that you won’t get from any part of the world. There are lot of Hindu temples, Churches, Cathedrals and Buddhist relics. The Seminaries, Churches and Cathedrals were built by Portugal, Dutch and British rulers time to time when they ruled this land. Still there are many cemeteries that carry the names of the Europeans dating back to hundreds of years.
