The Essential
Jaffna, the capital of the Tamil culture and its massive Hindu temple, Nallur Kandaswamy Kovil, the highlight of a major religious festival in summer, attracts Hindus from all over the north. A Vauban fort, picturesque fish market, colonial architecture, a busy shopping centre and ruins are among the other highlights. It is also a departure point for visits to the islands, particularly Nainativu and its temple devoted to Parvati, which is the site of fervent pilgrimages.
