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...
