It is better to make your early travel arrangements as there used to be a big rush in the last days. Mean while foreign devotees can get the Colombo Jaffna Air transport service starting Ratmalana to Palaly Airport. Foreginers can come to India and can get their flights that can land directly at the Jaffna (Palalay) Airport without going to Colombo Airport.
