Annual festival of the famous Nallur Kandswamy temple commenced
on Thursday (04) morning with participation of hundreds of devotees
from Jaffna and elsewhere. Out of island’s religious functions,
annual Pooja of the Nallur Hindu temple possesses the most
significant place as it draws thousands of Hindus and Buddhists
from the island and other countries for daily Poojas.
Attendance showed a drastic improvement after the threat of terrorists
was entirely eliminated from the country. Almost all hotels, guest
houses and lodgings are full of local and foreign devotees hoping
attend the Poojas.
Necessary security arrangements, medical and water facilities for
people have been arranged by the Security Forces Headquarters –
Jaffna with assistance of the Police and other relevant authorities.
The ceremony will end on 30th August with water cutting ceremony.
