  Jaffna Tour  
  Day 1

Upon arrival in Sri Lanka to be met at the Bandaranaike International Airport. Leave Colombo at 12.00 midnight

On arrival visit Jaffna Nallur Kovil* - a sacred destination of Hindu's, The Nallur kovil is about 1KM from the Jaffna town. There are some beautiful paintings and statues inside the kovil and outside the temple on top of the entrance you can see some beautifully carved statues. The carvings outside the kovil are not as colorful as the ones you normally see in Hindu kovils, which is a bit disappointing. Don't forget to try out ice creams from the famous ice cream shop nearby when you visit there.

Thereafter visit the Jaffna Library* - The Jaffna library was one of the best in Asia before it was burnt down. Now most of it is restored and part of it is open for public viewing. It is one of the monumental buildings in Jaffna and very close to the town.

In the evening will be able to go to the Jaffna Fort* - Jaffna fort is a place where bitter battles took place among LTTE and the Sri Lanka army. Originally built by the Portuguese there are still remains of the fort and if you can find a local guide or a person serving in the armed forces you can learn some fascinating stories about the battles and the fort.


Day 2

In the morning after breakfast leave for *Nagadeepa Island* - Nagadeepa island is one of the three places in Sri Lanka where Lord Buddha has visited. So Nagadeepa viharaya is an important destination for Buddhist pilgrims. There is also a popular Hindu kovil there, so although it is tricky to get there you can see huge crowds in the island. There are boat services available or if it is possible to ride in one of the navy speed boats which is an enjoyable way to visit the island. The Nagadeepa island is a bit far from Jaffna and it will take around 2-3 hours to get there, depending on the availability of the boats etc.

Thereafter leave to Point Pedro* - This is quite a bit away from Jaffna, but this is the top most corner of Sri Lanka, so if you are visiting Jaffna you might consider visiting there.


Day 3

After breakfast leave to*Casuarina beach* - One of the best beaches in the Jaffna peninsula, the shallow waters and the very gentle waves making it an ideal for safe sea bathing. You can go a long way toward the sea in the clear blue water and a great place to visit to have a break during your travels.

Keerimalai* - Keerimalai is renowned for its natural water spring where illnesses and sicknesses are cured miraculously after bathing in it. Only a stone wall separate the pool from the sea but the water is fresh water coming from a spring. There is a Hindu kovil as well, very popular among Hindu's.


Day 4

Leave for *Dambakola Patuna* - An ancient port in Sri Lanka, this is where Sangamiththa theraniya landed while bringing the Bo saplings used at Sri Maha Bodiya. There is a temple and a statue of Sangamiththa theraniya.
