Day 3 Trincomalee

Enjoy breakfast at the resort before a day of relaxation at Nilaveli Beach and Uppuveli Beach. In the afternoon, visit Koneshwaram Temple and Fort Fredrick.

Koneswaram Kovil, also known as the Koneswaram Temple or Thirukonamalai Konesar Temple, is a Hindu temple located in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka. It is one of the Pancha Ishwarams, five important Shiva temples spread across the island. Situated atop Swami Rock overlooking the Indian Ocean, the temple provides breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

With a long and rich history dating back to ancient times, the original temple is believed to have been built by the Chola Dynasty during the 3rd century BCE. Over the centuries, it underwent various renovations and expansions, showcasing a blend of Dravidian, Pallava, and Pandyan architectural styles.

Despite facing destruction, particularly during the Portuguese colonial period in the 17th century, the temple was later rebuilt and stands today as a reconstruction.

Uppuveli, a coastal area near Trincomalee on the eastern coast of Sri Lanka, is renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches, making it a popular destination for both local and international tourists.

Known for its pristine, golden sands and clear blue waters, Uppuveli Beach offers a relatively quieter and more relaxed atmosphere compared to other popular tourist spots. The calm waters are perfect for various water activities like swimming, snorkeling, diving, and boat trips. Its vibrant marine life and coral reefs attract underwater enthusiasts.

It's become a sought-after tourist destination, renowned for its tranquil ambiance. The highlight here is the expansive beach with soft golden sands and safe, crystal-clear waters protected by a coral reef, perfect for swimming and various water activities.

The area's allure extends to its vibrant coral reefs, inviting snorkelers to explore an array of colorful fish and marine life. Nearby, the Batticaloa Lagoon offers a chance for peaceful boat rides, showcasing the natural beauty of the surroundings.

Passikudah isn't just about its natural beauty; it also holds a rich cultural and historical heritage. Visitors can delve into the area's history by exploring sites like the historic Kallady Bridge, which holds significance dating back to the colonial era.

  • Use a Travel Credit already held with the airline
