Title Jaffna Heritage
Publisher New National Trust – Sri Lanka publication
About the Book This publication completes the National Trust- Sri Lanka series on the North and East with publications on Mannar, Batticaloa and Island of Islands in response to many requests from the public. The orange-red cover reminds of Jaffna’s chaya root heritage as well as its distinctive font. It is however not just another coffee table book with beautiful images although the opening pages with Devaka Seneviratne’s stunning photography suggests it is so. This book celebrates Jaffna as a multicultural city, a “meeting point of cultures and languages” where the old “grid city” is almost lost in the urban sprawl.

Here is gathered a collection of articles from experts, mostly academics from the University of Jaffna together with several contributions from overseas , stretching from the west coast of the US to Europe and Australia, making it quite difficulty for the editorial team of Sarala Fernando, Stefan D’Silva and Dr Malik Fernando to hold the project together over the three years of gestation.

The substantive chapters are divided into two parts, first, the archaeology, architecture, art, culture, religion, philosophy, sociology, the diaspora, entrepreneurship and tourism and second, the biodiversity covering water, freshwater fishes, mangroves, marine resources, fisheries, palmyra, mango, birds, ponds and home gardens.
