As mentioned in the Mahavamsa, in the fifth year (523 B.C) of Supreme Enlightenment, the Buddha had visited Nagadeepa in Lankadeepa (Sri Lanka) to settle a dispute between Mahodara and Chulodara -uncle and nephew who were at war with each other over a gem studded throne. During the Buddha's stay in Jethawana he saw in his Divine Eye the disaster about to take place in Nagadeepa and arrived there on Bak Amawaka Poya day (fifteen days prior to Bak Full Moon Poya Day).

According to historians, there stood a temple of magnificent stone structure at this site for several centuries worshiped by people from both Jaffna region and nearby Tamil kingdoms of Southern India, which was destroyed by the Portuguese colonial invaders (with the fall of Jaffna Kingdom) during the second decade of 17th century A.D. The present temple was built in stages by Hindus from Jaffna region after the successive Portuguese and Dutch Colonials powers, who deprived religious freedom of the local people, left the country.
Visit Jaffna Fort
Situated on the south side of the Jaffna peninsula at the water's edge of the lagoon, the ancient fort in Jaffna is the second largest existing fort in the Island. Originally built by the Portuguese in 1619 and re-built and expanded by the Dutch during the second half of the 17th and the 18th centuries to facilitate trading activities of Sri Lanka's northern region indicate not only of Jaffna's strategic importance to Europeans but its significance throughout Sri Lanka's history.
The five sided inner defense works consist of thick and high ramparts and bastions with a wide and deep moat around it. The layout resembles a geometrically regular pentagon which is defined by the ramparts with a bastion at each corner of the pentagon. Beyond these defense works is the star shaped moat, the outline of which roughly follows the bastion and rampart walls. The outer defense works include the glacis, the ravelins and a covered way. Unlike the Dutch forts at Galle and Colombo, which were fortified towns, the Jaffna Fort had an almost exclusively military and administrative function. The fort is the only surviving example in Sri Lanka, where its inner defenses has a geometrically regular pentagonal layout.
