About Jaffna

Jaffna is known for its historical associations with the Tamil language, as well as for its Hindu temples and festivals. The origin of the name "Jaffna" is unclear. It may have been derived from Yalpana Vaipava Malai or Yalpanam, which refers to the name of a medicinal plant found in abundance in the area. Another theory suggests that it derives from "Yappan", meaning 'island' in Tamil (as Jaffna peninsula was an island). The word also appears in Pali (Yapa-ma-hanna) and Sinhalese ("Aapane").
