On Sea St, the goldsmiths’ street, Old Kathiresan Kovil and New Kathiresan Kovil, both dedicated to the war god Murugan (Skanda), are the starting point for the annual Hindu Vel festival held in July/August, when the huge vel (trident) chariot is dragged to various kovils on Galle Rd in Bambalapitiya.
