On the day of Thai Pongal in Jaffna, the amazing Kite festival happens. This is the best kite festival in all of Sri Lanka. The kites are creative, and they are related to Jaffna and Hindu history and heritage. That is what makes this festival a very colourful one. There are large kites which require around 7 – 8 men to hold on to the rope that is connected to the kite.
