It is a small town in the Trincomalee District of the Eastern province of Sri Lanka. It is located about 20 km from the town of Trincomalee and 240 km from the national capital Colombo.

With over 35,000 [1] inhabitants, 97% of Kinniya residents are ethnic Muslims with the remaining being Tamils.

Located in Sri Lanka's dry zone, the Kinniya region often experiences hot and dry weather with very little precipitation. Sri Lanka's longest bridge is situated in this town, which is a tourist attraction in the area.

Being located on the Trincomalee Harbor, Kinniya was badly devastated by the massive Tsunami that resulted from the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake.
