Historic Hindu Shrine in Northern Sri Lanka Opens for Pilgrims

December 17th, 2009
COLOMBO, SRI LANKA, December 15, 2009: The historic Keerimalai Naguleswaram Kovil at Kankasanthurai in Northern Sri Lanka’s Jaffna peninsula will be open for Hindu devotees from today. Under a directive from the President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Sri Lankan authorities have opened the Kovil for all the pilgrims.

The Hindu Kovil had been under military occupation since 1990 and the devotees and priests needed special permission from security officials to visit the premises. The road from Senthankulam to Keerimalai is opened for the public and devotees would be able to visit the Naguleswaram Kovil daily for their worshiping, the Governor said. A special bus service from Jaffna will start from today to cater to the travel needs of pilgrims from Jaffna area.
