The final day of the annual festival of the Vattappalai Kannakki Amman Temple in Mullaitivu was held yesterday.

The Temple is dedicated to Goddess Kannakki Amma who is believed to be a deity of myths, mysteries, and miracles.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the large number of people who gather for the annual festival were less this year.

Military personnel  stationed in the area took part in the festival  with a Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) helicopter dropping flower petals as part of the festivities.

Here are sone photos of the festival:-
