Known as the biggest church is Jaffna, St. James Church dates back to the year 1828. This Anglican church was built on the site of the original Nallur Kandaswamy Temple before the temple was destroyed by the Portuguese. Surrounded by a lush canopy of trees, St. James Church is a favorite destination for the Christians living in Jaffna and the towns around. In December 2011, St. James Church was declared an archaeological protected site.
