Jaffna

3.7
A center of Tamil culture, the city of Jaffna remains in the process of rebuilding after suffering greatly during the civil war. Trips to Jaffna cannot fail but bring to mind the years of fighting the city endured, although the reconstruction of homes and infrastructure, and the development of new cultural and commercial focal points adds an inspiring and optimistic tone to the atmosphere. Forts, temples, and festivals punctuate the town, and provide destinations for walks, but the real attraction of Jaffna lies in the rhythm of the streets, the nature of the locals, and the tastes of the local cuisine. Jaffna is in Northern Province. Use our Sri Lanka trip itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Jaffna and any other destinations in Sri Lanka that take your fancy.
