Package Overview

Visit the ruins of the first capital of Sri Lanka founded in the 05th century BC. Here is found the largest number of ancient monuments of the great civilization of Sinhalese. Buddhism found its first real home in Sri Lanka at Anuradhapura, and it thus contains some of Sri Lankan Buddhism’s most sacred sites. The Sri Maha Bodhi tree in Anuradhapura, planted from a cutting from the original ‘bo tree’ under which the Buddha achieved enlightenment, continues to draw thousands of Buddhist pilgrims from around the world. Anuradhapura is one of the best places to explore the wonders of ancient architect, arts, culture and technology. Constructed in 1618 by the Portuguese and later taken over by the Dutch and the British the Jaffna fort continued to be a British garrison until 1948.Buildings inside the fort include the Governor’s residence, Queen’s House, Jaffna, the Garrison Parade Ground, Police quarters and several buildings from the Portuguese era. With the onset of the Sri Lankan Civil War it came under siege on several occasions and was the scene of pitched battles. From 1986 to 1995 it was under the control of the LTTE and was recaptured by the Sri Lanka Army in 1995 after a 50 day siege. Today the Fort is under an intense Archaeological and structural revamp with the assistance of the Dutch government. Visit to Nallur Kandaswamy Temple & Library: Nallur Kandaswamy temple is one of the most impressive religious building in Jaffna and one of the most significant Hindu temple complexes in the country dedicated to God Murugan. The kovil’s 15th-century structure was vandalized by Portuguese in the 17th century and the current structure was rebuilt in 1734. Its beautifully maintained large and airy space shelters decorative brass work, larger-than-life murals, pillared halls and a colonnaded, stepped holy pool, all dominated by the golden-ochre, god-encrusted gopuram peering down one length of Point Pedro Road. The temple hosts an enormous and spectacular Hindu festival for over 25 days in July/August, which climaxes on the twenty fourth with parades of floats and displays of self-mutilation by entranced devotees. Casuarina Beach:Named for the abundance of casuarina trees the casuarina beach had been protected by the polluting human tough for the last thirty years from a ravaging war. Considered to be one of the beat beaches in the Jaffna peninsula, the powder soft sand, the shallow waters up to almost a mile towards the sea and lack of strong currents and waves make it one the ideal bathing spots in the area. This beautiful beach destination, Trinco as it is commonly called, has been a sea port since the days of the ancient Kings and one of the British Empire’s most important ports in Asia during the Second World War. From 1941-45, Trinco had been the headquarters of Lord Louis Mountbatten Allied Southeast Asia commander. Visit Swami Rock & Hot water springs:A shear rock outcrop called Swami Rock, several meters high above the sea is the tip of the Fort Frederick thus named by the British. Having being occupied by the Dutch and the Portuguese. The massive Hindu temple dedicated Koneswara has said to have been stood here until it had been destroyed by the Portuguese. A modern temple is now built around the same location. Within the Swami Rock is Lover’s Leap where a Dutch Officer’s daughter had leapt after a broken affair. Boat Ride to Pigeon Island: Pigeon Island is located around 1 km away from the Nilaveli beach. This is consists of two islands, one is small and other one is larger in size. This is one of the best places to see corals.This island got its name because of the Rock Pigeons live over there. In year 2003 Pigeon island was designated as a nation park in Sri Lanka. Earlier it was a sanctuary. This island was used by British army as a place for shooting practice in early world war time. Whale Watching: It is a whale of a time in East Coast. Get up close and personal with the largest animal on the earth. To see a Blue Whale in its natural habitat is something most of us can only dream of. To see more than one in a lifetime would be very rare experience reserved for a fortunate lot. Visit to Minneriya National Park: A large number of Sri Lankan elephants are attracted to grass fields on the edges of the reservoir during the dry season. The Minneriya tank contributes to sustain a large herd of about 200 elephants. Explore this park by 4×4 safari jeep. Colombo, Sri Lanka’s bustling capital, is located on the country’s west coast and is by far the country’s biggest city, as well as its window on the world. The city is a jarring mix of old and new, with a central cluster of high-rise office blocks and hotels overshadowing red-tiled colonial-era buildings and sprawling street markets which overflow with high piled fruit and vegetables, colorful silks and cottons, and deliciously fragrant spices. Colombo offers many interesting venues that you can visit. The Galle Face Green Promenade, the National Museum, the National Art Gallery, the Independence Square.
