Koneswaram Temple, Trincomalee Reviews
It is a Hindu temple but a small one . Found probably manny years ago and seems to be a temple for blessing to have more children. A seaside view from the temple that is on the cliff do have a great look of the Indian Ocean ! You prepare to pay and remove your shoes to walk there! Do prepare to wear a modest dress when visiting .
Nice Big Kovil. Sea view was amazing from there. Inside was nice. Bit crowded. Nice if you can visit the place in the evening or early morning.
A place not to miss if you travel around Trincomalee area. A place located by the sea that refreshes your mind and to worship Hindu gods.
Hindu peoples worship place. Nice environment. Wear applicable closths, before coming to this place.
It's good to change our mode... good start up for travel around Trincomalee...
