Kottu Vaasal Amman's Chariot

Kottu Vassal Amman Kovil is a Hindu temple located in the Northern town Point-Pedro, Sri Lanka. This temple is also known as Sandika Parameswari Amman Kovil.

This temple is located in front of the Point Pedro court complex, as the result local people started to call it kottu vaasal amman kovil which means the amman kovil located in front of the court's gate.

In 1996 when the Jaffna peninsula fell from LTTE to Sri Lankan Army, the temple and surrounding declared as the High Security Zone. But with the fall of LTTE in 2009, this temple is opened to public once again after more than a decade.
