The Eelam Pavilion welcomes you. Learn about our rich culture and language and enjoy various forms of dance and taste our spicy and unique food during Carabram.

People in Eelam speak the language called Tamil – spoken by over 80 million people all over the world – 60 million live in Tamil Nadu in India, 3 million live in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) in the North and East, one million live in Malaysia and more than 300,000 live in Canada.

Tamil was accorded the status of a Classical Language, a designation that recognizes its antiquity but also its role as a carrier of great culture containing inspiring messages

Tamil language is amongst the oldest living languages of the world with its extraordinary volume of literature and grammar. It has been the means through which people have vividly expressed their understanding, aspirations and ideals. Its oldest work Tolkaappiyam dates back to about 200 years BC.
