Temple Run (5)

Hello! In this post I’ll show you two big temples I visited. I’ve visited a lot of temples during my stay and while road tripping. I want to show you especially these two temples in Trincomalee. We stayed in Trinco with my aunt’s family. 

The first temple is the Koneswaran temple, which is a dravidian architecture. I didn’t take any pictures from the inside, because we weren’t allowed. The huge gab in the Swami Rock is called Ravanan vettu (Ravana’s cut/ lovers leap). My dad told me the story that in a fight between Ravanan and Lord Siva – Lord Siva was about to slay Ravanan with his sword, but Ravanan dodged in time, and instead Lord Siva’s sword cut through the swami rock. Well, that’s the story my dad told me, but how it actually is written I don’t know.

After visiting Koneswaran temple, we visited the souvenir shops along the way, and found a dessert-café and got some cool-drinks. Get used to the term “cool-drinks”, I’ll be using it a lot on this trip. 😉

Next temple we visited was the Pathirakali Amman temple in Trinco. The ceiling details were phenomenal! I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an amazing ceiling work before! I took some pictures from the inside so you can see for yourself 🙂

These were the bigger temples I visited in Trincomalee. In my upcoming post, my stay in Trinco continues and we’ll be on sea 😉 ♥

Waterbending Pro (4)

Hey! In this part I’ll just show you some pictures of a beach in Jaffna. The sand was soft beneath our feet and the water was so clear! We dipped our feet in the water, and since I wore a dress above my knees I walked further into the water and enjoyed being a “water bender” 100%. Sadly I have no video of my terrible attempt to control the waves, but my cousin has it. I promise it looked hilarious. 

We sat in the sand and enjoyed the sunset behind us while small crabs crawled around us. Here are some pictures I captured on the trip.

The beach is just so beautiful! I got lot more beautiful places to show you. This is only the beginning 😉 ♥
