It was almost evening and the sun was about to set. So, Subraj hurried to the Jaffna Fort before it got too dark. He had to leave me at the fort as another traveller had arrived at the guest house. In the meanwhile, I roamed around the deserted fort.
The city also boasts of a Dutch fort, a bottomless well and many attractive islands.How to get there: There are regular train and bus services to Jaffna from Colombo. The new air conditioned 'Intercity express' is the coolest way to get to Jaffna(no pun intended!).Budget accommodation: 500-800 INR per person.Where to eat: Hotel Rolex's spicy Biriyani is worth a try!
