In the far north of Sri Lanka, Jaffna, a former royal capital, remains a very important centre of Tamil culture. As yet uncrowded by tourists, the city it is an exciting 'deeper cut' in any exploration of Sri Lanka. The best time for Jaffna holidays is any time that concides with a major Hindu festival, such as Pongal in April, meaning you can enjoy an even more fun atmosphere in the city. With one
of our expert guides to bring Jaffna vividly to life, visit the Dutch fort overlooking the harbour, the imposing temple of Nallur Kandaswamy and the huge public library, built in Mughal style. Finally, no Jaffna holiday would be complete without a delicious dining experience; we recommend the spicy shrimp with mango found locally.
