Mannar

Mannar  is a district of Sri Lanka. Mannar means 'deer river' or 'silt river'. The ancient port was known as Mahaota Mahawamsa, Mantota, and Mahatheetha in Sanskrit, where it means the 'great port'. Mathoddam or Manthai and many other variants are found, e.g., in Egyptian, Chinese, Portuguese and Dutch maps. The Malvatu oya (Aruvi Aru) provided a direct water route from Mantota to the Ancient capital Anuradhapura. Many Buddhist ruins dating to pre-Christian times are found in this area. This is the location of Thiruketheeswaram. the ancient temple which was sung in Tevaram and visited by Sambanthar.
