A kovil dedicated to Goddess Kannakki Amma.

Situated in Mullaitivu, Vattappalai Kannakki Amman Temple is dedicated to Goddess Kannakki Amma. According to Karna legend, Kannaki from Madurai arrived in Sri Lanka and rested in ten different places. The tenth place she visited was named Paththam-Palai (Paththam – tenth, Palai – residence). Over time the name evolved to Vattappalai. Vattapalai Amman is believed to be a deity of myths, mysteries and miracles. Vaikasi Visakam Pongal Thiruvilla is the main festival, which is held in May.
