Kanniya Hot Springs, Trincomalee

1.2
#3 of 6 in Parks in Trincomalee
Experience everyday local tradition and take a bath in the holy waters of Kanniya Hot Springs. The earliest references to this site date back to the Ravana period, over 5,000 years ago. Today, locals who wish to benefit from the water's medicinal properties visit the wells. Step onto the tile floor and find seven man-made square-shaped wells, each no more than waist-deep. Grab a bucket, scoop out some water (sourced from natural springs below), and take a bath the local way. Notice that each of the wells varies slightly in temperature. Kanniya Hot Springs is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
