“Another interesting temple, worth visiting”
Review of Nallur Kovil

Nallur Kovil
Ranked #1 of 32 things to do in Jaffna
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This temple stands out on approach and there is a lot of construction work taking place to make it even more impressive. Again, men have to remove shoes and shirts to enter. A service with devotees was taking place during our morning visit but there was no restriction on walking around the complex, internal and external. The terraced pool, for Hindus to cleanse themselves, is being retiled but even in its less than glamorous state is notable viewing. A negative is the number of beggars at entrance gate but buy a coconut and break it on the rock set up for this purpose as you approach church for good karma! No entry fee.

We visited Nallur Kovil in the evening. There was a pooja at 5.30 and the temple closed at 06 p.m. It is very beautiful. They do not allow to take photographs inside the Kovil and men are not allowed to wear Tshirt or shirt when they enter inside the kovil.

When I saw the temple I had to say "waaaa" (I never went to India). The inside is also nice, it is huge and the architecture is very interesting. Their is a "pool" inside and the workers and religious guys are very friendly.
