As non Hindu one must observe the rituals and rules when entering I.e. remove your shoes at the gate entrance. Wash your feet. Before entering the temple. There was a lot of prayer and enlightenments to the gods. No photography allowed inside.a spectacular temple and a must visit

Liked the temple a lot as the architecture was lovely...inside and out. Only thing is that it's fairly small and you should be done in about half an hour. There's a long line for the offering as well but it's worth it.

Terrible place. Proste refused us to enter temple. Kind of discrimination. First problem were shorts, than bag, than baby, finally watch. I am glad there are Buddhist temples near by

A must visit place, if you go to Jaffna. Novel experience and male have to enter with their upper body naked.

Large and impressive temple. 5.00 pm is a good time to visit. There was a pooja (?) at this time. I think that there are other times too.

One of the most famous places in Jaffna. A spectacular hindu kovil with a lot of history. If your visiting Jaffna then this is one of the best places to go could be little crowded but definitely worth a visit.
