Located in the suburbs of Sambalativu, Uppuveli captures the earthy beachside of Sri Lanka, and in this belt lies the Uppuveli beach, 6 km northwest of the city of Trincomalee. Uppuveli in Sri Lanka is iconic due to its golden sands that shimmer in the sunlight. The warm sun enthrones the blue skies and sets a dewy glow upon the seas and the heaps of debris. Such is the scenic beauty of the Uppuveli beaches!
The Koneshwaram temple or the Temple of the Thousand Pillars is a classical-medieval Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Legend has it that this temple was built in 400 BC and it has devotees swarming in from different parts of the world. Fort Fredrick stands contrasting to the synagogue on the peninsula. The fortress which is now used by the Sri Lankan military was erected by the Portuguese and developed by the Dutch. On the same grounds, stands the Wellesley house, a real example of yesteryear architecture that once hosted the Duke of Wellington.
