Kanniya Hot Springs - Review
Dating back to the period of Ravana (around 5000 years ago), the Kanniya Hot Springs finds it mention in the Ramayana – one of the most iconic Hindu Mythology books.
It is believed the hot springs emerged when Ravana struck the land with his sword. Others believe that the site was an ancient Buddhist site. Either ways, the place is rooted in history and is a pleasure to see. Touch a part of this history as you come here to explore the archeological ruins and freshen up with the hot spring water.

Kanniya Hot Springs, Trincomalee Reviews
A nice place for hot ♨ water 💦 bath. There are 5-6 wellsprings and all of them are usable. Many basic facilities and vehicle parking 🅿 available.
Not clean at all. Do not recommend for anybody. When I visited about 20 years ago, even though the infrastructure was not built as today, the place was clean. This time (in 2018) I didn't even bother to go down the stairs.
Very nice place to go on leisure time. There are seven hot water wells are available. Theses are in different temperature. This is located almost 200 meters away from the main road. Many buses are available on the main road.
If you want to experince nice hot water this is the place. But the changing rooms are not good at all. I gave 5 stars for the hot water springs only. The sanitation is bad.
We have visited this place a long time ago.. it was really good back then... but now it's crowded a lot... guess that what happens with time.. place is little dirty..
