Batticaloa Online first started in 1999 as a website with a primary focus on providing information about Batticaloa as there were no websites for Batticaloa with the same or similar intention at that time.

In 2008 Batticaloa Online had a change in strategic focus and launched a new website which provided more news, information and events for the Batticaloa region. In November 2016 Batticaloa Online launched its third and current website design to make it easier for news, information, events and businesses to be displayed.

We are excited about the future for Batticaloa Online and thank you for your interest and support.
