Jaffna sightseeing can be an interesting and fascinating experience, especially as there are many historic Hindu temples and churches with amazing architecture. However, most places may now be in a dilapidated condition consequent to the effects of the war.
Island hopping is certainly one of the unique and exciting things to do in Jaffna as you hobble along the beautiful islands of Kayts, Karaitivu, Punkudutivu and Mandativu, with each providing a different experience.
On the other hand, dining is a must on your list of things to do in Jaffna. Thanj Hotel is great for hot, melting in the mouth, hoppers. The Malayan Café offers a very different experience of eating delicious vegetarian delights on banana leaves. The marble-top tables and long glass and wood cabinets are quite extraordinary as against the usual setting in Jaffna.
Find your way to the Morgan’s Guest House if you would like to enjoy a drink in the evening over a chat with some of the villagers. Another one of the important things to do includes paying a visit to at least one of Jaffna’s cream houses including Lingam Cream House, Raja Ice Cream or Rio, famously known for serving the most delicious home-made ice cream.Submit Inquiry
