Important places in Jaffna and their distances are provided here for the benefits of the visitors to Jaffna District. This distance will help you to plan your visit to this beautiful district and to pay for the Tuk Tuk drivers according to the place distance. All the distances are measured from the Jaffna central bus stand for easy calculation. This information is helpful for the for the foreign tourists and local visitors. Start your journey with the public transport or with your own transport. Some of the private busses operating to these places are Japanese made one and are good for sitting passengers only. They are cheap but if you don't get a seat then as standing passenger you will suffer terrible experience inside of these busses. Large red color SLTB busses are good for standing passengers too. It is better to self ride a Honda Dio scooter or a Royal Enfield motorcycle. You can get these on daily rental basis with all the required papers and with two helmets..

Local people used to have their own scooter, motorcycles, three wheels (Tuk Tuk) and bicycles for their own transport. Here mornings and evenings are full of two wheels on the road. On Saturdays and Sundays there used to be less traffic on the road and it is easy to travel on these days. Tuk Tuk drivers who used to provide rental service can be found at every junctions. Also there are pickMe call App Tuk Tuk too are available in the town area. Some old cars are running as Taxi in the Jaffna Town area.

Before to board a Tuk Tuk, check whether it got a working Tariff meter in it. Also ask one of the bystanders, how much they used to pay for the tuk tuk to go to the place you want to travel.. Then add Rs 50/- for that fare and bargain with the tuk tuk driver, if there is no tariff meter in it. This can apply to all places in Sri Lanka when you are going with tuk tuk on Ancient city tours in Sri Lanka. Hindu Temples are called as Kovil and Buddhist temples are called as Pansala by the local people. So if you want to find the route to Nallur Murugan Temple ask the area people for Nallur Kovil route or use Apps or on the Maps.

Our advice: While in Jaffna use your own vehicle (Self Drive car Rs 5,000/- per day). Or rent a Motorcycle or Scooter if you have driving License. Their Rent price is around S6 -12 per day. You can rent bicycles on daily rental basis from Rs 100./- up to Rs 1,000/-. Or keep walking or depend on public transport while you are in Jaffna..
