Jaffna Public Library

This is one of the Jaffna’s most prominent cultural landmarks. During the early 1980s it was one of the biggest libraries in Asia, containing over 97,000 books and manuscripts. And the library was unfortunately burnt down during the election in 1982. The new library was recuperated with new structure and some of the manuscripts rescued from the fire.
