As such Security Force Headquarters - Jaffna launched a beautification project of "Sakkotei" under the directives and guidance of Major General Dharshana Hettiarrachchi, Commander, Security Forces - Jaffna. The project involved support of troops from 55 Division and voluntary support from civilians in the area.

A new luminous national flag which is visible to offshore vessels and fishermen for their easy navigation was also set up in place of the existing national flag. This too has added more colour and recognition to this spectacular site.

The project also aims to uplift the residence's livelihood and micro business with the influx of local and foreign tourists visiting the area. Moreover, this scenic spot has given an identity and recognition to the people in "Sakkotei" with its environmental significance and importance in the peninsula.
