This time we want to propose you again options in one of the most impressive and beautiful destinations in the world. The Fabulous Getaway will take us to Sri Lanka, specifically to the spectacular city of Jaffna, located in the north of the country. It is a vibrant destination that stands out especially for its historical heritage, its characteristic architecture and an imposing culture that blends Tamil traditions with influences from neighboring countries.
Things you may not have known about this destination:
- How to get there.
The fastest way to get there is by plane from the international airport of Colombo, however, opting for speed would be to give up spectacular and green landscapes that you can see if you choose the train or car. Undoubtedly, an experience that we recommend to those who do not mind spending nine hours on this journey.
- What is the ideal season to travel?
The ideal season to enjoy the north of Sri Lanka is from May to July, when the region’s frequent rains begin to subside and temperatures have not yet reached their peak.
- What to see?
The Jaffna Fort, a walled enclosure that bears witness to the colonial history of the city, stands out. We also find several temples such as the Nallur Kandaswamy Kovil, a landmark of the architecture of the region, where the annual festival of Nallur is celebrated, which includes numerous religious rituals, processions and cultural performances.Near the city of Jaffna, on the island of Nagadeepa, the Nagadeepa Purana Viharaya Temple sits on the sea, famous for housing a sacred relic of Buddha, which gives it great spiritual significance.
On Delft Island, an endearing and exotic enclave, you can visit the native wild horses, known for their hardiness and endurance as a result of adaptation to the island’s conditions.
- Enjoy the food!
We could not pass through this destination without savoring its gastronomic offerings. Jaffna’s cuisine is predominantly vegetarian and is heavily influenced by the flavors of South India. The use of aromatic spices such as fenugreek, cumin and coriander give the dishes their characteristic personality.
