Sangilean Thoppu is located in Nallur, Jaffna. It is not a bigger monument to visit and view, but it stands as the monument of the last Tamil king who ruled the Yarlpana Kingdom (Jaffna). This was the capital of Jaffna Kingdom (7th century CE) and its business city was named as Yarlpana Pattinam. In Tamil language Pattinam means that a town that is located next to sea. Meanwhile "Pattanam" means that the city which is located surrounded by land (in Tamil language). For example Kandy town is called as Kandy Pattanam in Tamil.
