Off the coast of Jaffna in Northern Sri Lanka, lies the remote island of Nainativu. As soon as the island comes into view during the ferry crossing you can clearly see the tall, colourful gopurams of Naagadeepa Vihara, a south Indian, Tamil, style Hindu temple right at the pier. It was such a pleasure to visit the island, meet the incredibly friendly locals and tour around inside the temple. Luckily for us we arrived as puja (prayer) was beginning, walking around the brightly painted inside of the temple as music was played by the Brahmin priests.
