Nallur Kovil Reviews
A definite place to visit. If you’re going inside the temple you (men) need to be top less. But you can still view it without going inside. This is a Hindu temple (and a place of worship) more »
Amazing architecture and a very beautiful temple to visit. Definitely recommend people to visit at least once in a their life times. more »
The most beautiful temple in Srilanka 😊 one of best powerful temple I have ever seen.it has nice architecture and millions of devotes, specially all are visiting in every August 😍
Nallur Kandaswamy Temple is a must visit in Jaffna. But it should also be kept in mind that no photographs can be taken of the interior and will be considered an offence if failed to do so. Most importantly no man is allowed to enter the Temple with their upper body covered, in other words men should take off their shirt, t-shirt or whatever that coves their upper body. Whereas women should be dressed in a decent manner, and not reveal certain areas of their body.
