Lakshmi Narayana Perumal Kovil, Trincomalee

The Lakshmi Narayana Perumal Kovil in Nilaveli, Trincomalee is dedicated to the supreme preserver Lord Vishnu, the peace-loving deity of the Hindu tradition, who is believed to be the preserver or sustainer of life with his unwavering principles of truth, righteousness and order. The Kovil is a massive edifice mingling sky blue and sparkling gold, embellished with intricate carvings and colourful sculptures that unfailingly awed the approaching devotees.

Constructed in 2011, the Temple is an exact replica of South Indian Temple and has been made with the workmanship of craftsmen brought down especially from South India.

You would be surprised to see the massive structure and the intricate carvings on the many golden pillars that hold the high dome. A constant chirping of tiny birds echoes within against the pervading silence.
