What seems to be Sri Lanka's only architectural legacy from the Soviet times (which they never had), is in fact result of a governmental housing project and the only flats in whole Jaffna. The buildings were partly damaged during the heavy battles along this strategically important stripe of coast. About 250 fisherman families live here in confined space, missing many basic facilities. Some apartments are uninhabitable during the rainy season.
