'Gram-sellers' on the road leading to the jetty
This temple has a history going back to antiquity. The presence of the legendary Naga tribes in the North of Sri Lanka is very much evident even today. This temple devoted to a Naga Goddess, place names like 'Naagar Kovil' and surnames like Nagalingam, Nagamma, Nagamuththu, Nagamony etc is a present day reality.
