The Doric at Arippu

Once ghost towns along the Puttlum – Mannar coastal line bordering Wilpattu National Park, these small towns and villages are slowly waking up from a 30 year slumber after the end of the LTTE terrorist occupation. This stretch of sea was world famous for thousands of years for for producing finest pearls in the world but today a waste land with few fishing villages due to over exploitation. Portuguese, Dutch and British all had considerable interest in the region and the best example is the massive bungalow of the British Governor, Sir Frederick North (1798-1805) built for the supervision of pearl fishery operations in the region.
