It's a busy temple and beautiful. I was amazed to see and learn about Hindu traditions and how people perform the ceremonies there.

You can have a nice breathing view of the blue ocean and Trincomale beach. I had fruit juice there in a small shop.

Excellent beautiful place to visit. Its a place of worship for Hindus but people from all religions go there to get blessings. There's a belief that you will be blessed with child if you got blessings for this temple. Also you can get a beautiful view of Trincomalee sea from a very high level. You have huge rocks forming this location and one of the points is called loves leap. There's so many stories attached to this place I think you can google this stories. A must place to visit in Trincomalee.

Went as a group of friends. A long walk from where we got dropped off as our bus was too big. Uphill walk and some of us struggled a bit but we eventually reached the top. Amazing architectural structure: beautiful views from the top. The Raavanan Vettu was worth a look too. Enjoyed the visit very much - even those belonging to other faiths.

One of my favourite Hindu Kovils in Sri Lanka.

Way to Thirukonrshvaram through Fort itself is full of amazing sceneries including dears both sides of the road.

The small market just before the Kovil is also really colorful and last June I bought so many stuff from there.

With my mediocre Tamil Proficiency I managed to learn a lot about Tamil kings and the history behind this Kovil.

The view of the sea from the Kovil is simply magical.

The Koneswaram temple is one of the main highlights of the east coast of Sri Lanka in Trincomalee. The temple is located high above the bay, and you can view the breathtaking and awe-inspiring scenery on all sides. The site is a religious pilgrimage for the Hindus and is also known as the Kailasa of the South. The Koneswaram temple is one of the five “Pancha Ishwarams” (abodes of Shiva) which has been built to worship Lord Shiva- the supreme God of Hinduism.
