Jaffna Town: Travel Video of Northern Tamil, Sri Lanka (யாழ்ப்பாணம்)

3632 ratings | 820891 views
Visit: http://migrationology.com/ for more travel tips and street food! Jaffna is the northern capital of the Tamil area of Sri Lanka. Not long ago it was the center of the Sri Lankan civil war, but today Jaffna remains safe to visit as a tourist. Jaffna town (யாழ்ப்பாணம்) is full of rich Tamil culture, a great place to hit the streets are explore the local food and flavors of town. During this Jaffna travel video I walk around on Beach Road, eat a delicious Sri Lankan food breakfast of paratha bread and pol sambol (coconut garnish), check out the Jaffna Fort, walk past countless old building ruins, take a chaotic walk straight through the center of Jaffna town, eat a sour Jaffna mango, visit Nallur Kovil Hindu Temple for a 4pm traditional ceremony, dine on traditional local style Tamil Jaffna food, and finally taste for the first time a cup of thick wood apple juice! Jaffna town (யாழ்ப்பாணம்) is an amazing town with a rich history and a very interesting culture. There are many things to do in Jaffna and a lot of places to see. I hope you enjoyed this Jaffna travel video! Thanks for watching! All footage is from Jaffna Town, Northern Sri Lanka, taken during the month of October, 2011.

தமிழ் மக்களை கொடுமைகள் செய்து தாழ்த்தி வாழ வைத்து உள்ளது இந்த பௌத்த மதம் இருக்கும் விழிவு காலம் கிடைக்காது பௌத்த மதத்தினர் கோடீஸ்வரனாக வாழ்ந்து கொண்டுதான் இருக்கிறான்கள் இது உலகளாவிய அறிந்த உண்மை உலகம் 🌏 தமிழ் மக்களை வேடிக்கையாக பார்த்து கொண்டுதான் இருக்கிறார்கள் இந்தியா வரை இதில் அதிக பாதிப்பு அடைந்தவர்கள் தமிழ் ஈழ மக்கள் தான் ஏன் இந்த நிலைமை தமிழர்களை ஏமாற்றி 😔 குளிர் காய்ந்து கொண்டிருக்கிறார்கள்

Learn eating properly. Eating rice with bread (parata) is disgusting. It is very very informal  eating these two together at the same time.

You have to be careful of the Sinhalese people in Jaffna. They killed lots of Tamils under the rule of Rajapakse. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJbzpbm1Kjk Watch the video for proof
Kristoguge Fernando (6 months ago)
Yeah definitely a great city,in the Northern tip of Sri lanka. Majority of inhabitants were hard working,religious minded, intelligent Tamil people.I am a Sinhalese.But I whole heartedly acknowledge them. Let long lasting peace and prosperity return to the Island nation of Sri lanka. (Pearl of the Indian Ocean)
niro nallaperumaarachige (2 months ago)
90% of Sri Lankan' and 99% of Sinhalese have never been to Jaffna. My father and mother went there once before I was in 1971. Would love to go see Jaffna - one day. Even though I am a Sinhalese Buddhist ; My name Nallur- perumal -arsen ( nallaperumaarachgige ) sounds suspiciously like my ancestors come from Jaffna

Jaffna is a beautiful city which was located in Northern provinces of Sri Lanka. So many beautiful places are there but this man has shown very few places. Always this man has eaten only parotta and fish curry. So many treditional foods are there in Jaffna. Ravindran Tirupur
Good...you every happy sri lankan
waditha gamage (1 year ago)
appriciate ur eforts to eat rice by hand little more travel in SL u will get it quickly...by nw warzones r more developed..even SL forces play a major role developing activities in those areas, after defeating LTTE Terrorists in 18May2008 by SL forces rescuing more civilians. This note is in May 16, 2018..I hv covered almost every corner of West Jaffna nw..visited all possible islands whicj has quick acess..East Jaffna too covered but not every corner oneday planing to do that.
