The Trincomalee district referred as Gokanna or Gokarna in the historical chronicles and inscriptions, is studded with a multitude of ruins of ancient Buddhist temples, and is considered a major Buddhist cultural and archaeological site of Sri Lanka. The seven hot springs at Kanniya located a mere 8km from Trincomalee attract regular visitors throughout the year for their therapeutic properties. Trincomalee is home to the fine beaches of Nilaveli, Uppuveli and the off-shore Pigeon Island. It has become popular as a whale watching destination and the dive centres at Nilaveli and Uppuveli offer incredible diving, snorkelling and swimming opportunities.
