Mannar (Port Code:LKMAN) is an ancient harbor situated in the Mannar district, of the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. Located on the southeastern tip of the subcontinent, the Gulf of Mannar is known to harbour over 3,600 species of flora and fauna, making it one of the richest coastal regions in Asia. This region witnessed extensive long distance maritime activities from the Early Historic period; from 500 BCE to 500 CE. The chief seaports on the Gulf of Mannar are Thoothukudi (Tuticorin) in Tamil Nadu, and Colombo in Sri Lanka. While these ports can accommodate deep-draft vessels, the shallow Palk Strait can only accommodate small shallow-draft vessels.
