  • This is a must visit place in Trinko if you love history of war. Other than the history of weaponry and vessels, there are a lot of office equipment that have been used centuries ago. This place is covered by a jungle and situated on a top of a mountain so as to see all around. Very beautiful place to be.
  • First of all, We had to take permission to visit the museum, for that please contact Eastern Naval command for guidance before you vist, Naval museum shows us the remarkable history of the Sri Lankan Navy up to end of the defeat of the LTTE Terrorists. One of the must visit place in Trincomalee.
