Not too many people visit Jaffna in northern Sri Lanka and even less make the journey to the remote Nainativu island. Home to a beautiful Tamil style Hindu temple and the North’s only Buddhist temple, many locals make the journey from the mainland to Nainativu island. To reach the island you have to take a ferry, run by the Sri Lankan navy. The ferry is really a very simple wooden barge, with very little space for passengers and a loud, chugging engine to propel the boat across the Palk Strait.
