Area Info

Trincomalee one of the finest natural deepwater harbors in the world is located 257 km northeast of Colombo capital city of Sri Lanka. Trincomalee is home to fine beaches of Nilaveli Uppaveli and offshore Pigeon Island. Recently Trincomalee has become popular as a Whale Watching destination too. The Dive centers at Nilaveli Uppaveli support the tourists to enjoy their holidays in diving snorkeling and swimming. Trincomalee district called Gokanna or Gokarna in the historical chronicles and inscriptions being studded with a multitude of ruins of ancient Buddhist temples is a major Sinhalese Buddhist cultural and archeological site of Sri Lanka. The seven hot springs at Kanniyai located just 8km from Trincomalee attract regular crowds throughout the year in view of the therapeutic properties of water therein varying in temperature from one well to the other.

Gokarna in Trincomalee Mantota in Mannar and Dambakolapattuna in Jaffna among other seaports of Sri Lanka had been great ports of ancient Three Sinhala since 543 B.C. Trincomalee or Gokanna or Gokarna or Siri Gonamala as the ancient seaport town was recorded in the historical chronicles of Sri Lanka is the harbor where Prince Panduvasudeva King Vijyas nephew sailed into Sri Lanka from Sinhapura India. Badda Kachchayana who later became the queen of King Panduwasdeva 505474 B.C. with her party of royal maidens too landed in Siri Gonamala harbor. She was a sister of Prince Digha the founder of Dighavapi.

In an essay entitled Aryan settlements and early kings published in the Concise History of Ceylon by Sri Lankas foremost historian a preeminent archeologist Dr. Senarath Paranavithana writing about the king who ruled Ceylon Sri Lanka after the first king Vijaya said Panduvasdeva with thirty two followers it is said arrived in Ceylon in the guise of mendicant monks. They landed at the mouth of the Mahakandara River at the port of Gokanna the modern Trincomalee according to the commentator of the chronicle Mahavamsa.

E. T. Kannangara in Jaffna and the Sinhala heritage wrote Trincomalee during the periods of the Sinhala kings was one of the chief trading centers in Sri Lanka. Sri Gokarna Siri Gokanna Sri Gonapura Siri Gonamala Gonagamaka Pattana GonagamaPatuna and much earlier Gokannatitta were some of the names attached to this place in the chronicles. The present Sinhala name Thirikunamala is apparently a derivation from Siri Gonamala. The conversion of the name follows the pattern that Sinhala names Somapura Kokavila Mampe and Valigama Madakalapuva being converted into Sampur Kokuvil Manipay Valikamam and Mattakalapu.

The conversion of Gokarna to Tirukonamalai first appears in a Tamil inscription dated to 10th or 11th century A.D. Buddhist Vihara at Gokanna called Sri Gokarna Vihara built in the reign of King Mahasen 276303 A.C. was the earliest religious edifice in Trincomalee. Being on a rock it was also called Vehera Gala Vihara on a rock. Gokanna Buddhist Vihare temple was expanded by King Agbo V 718724 AD and demolished by the Portuguese to build a fortress in the 16th century. Gokanna Vihare is one of the 74 Buddhist sites identified at Trincomalee district by the Department of Archeology of Sri Lanka. Swami Rock the highest point in Fort Frederick is an ancient site where there had been Buddhist shrines.
