Begin your morning with a visit to Nallur temple. Traditional “shalve”/”Veddi” will be provided to wear when you enter the temple. Learn the history and importance of Nallur temple, and the basic principles of worshipping at a Hindu temple will be demonstrated. If you are keen on learning the way of reaching enlightenment and “Hatha Yoga” basics can be explained while traveling - you won't attain enlightenment in half an hour but it is worth a shot. Delve into Jaffna’s culture, similarities and differences of South Indian culture, the scar of war, and the effects of migration and exile has had in the region.
Later, explore Karainagar Kasurina beach, Kayts jetty, Hanuman temple, Kantharodai Buddhist miniature pagodas, deep well, Keerimalai pond, Naguleswaram temple. Lunch will be provided at a village home with fried cuttlefish, Jaffna prawn curry, toasted crab, fish masala, mashed brinjal, drumstick curry, fish gravy, etc. Meals will be served on a banana leaf as a traditional Jaffna style lunch.
The rest of the afternoon is yours to relax on the quiet Casuarina beach. If in season, try the fruit of the Palmyra tree. It is like nothing you ever had before a combination of coconut and jelly.
