The largest two storied doubled wall traditional designer house with a beautiful courtyard that I found in Jaffna. Even though the owners did not resettle, they use to visit the places time to time and clean the place. Some of these houses have care takers. Some houses have built fences and gates after the lands were released. Some of the lands are used for agricultural activities while the rest of the lands were completely abandoned.  Those who don’t owned lands are still living in temporary shelters in Jaffna.   Mainly they are wedge labors and is considered as people of lowest cast.
