Important Tourist Places

Trichy Rock Fort


The 83 meter high Rock Fort is the only outcrop in the otherwise flat land of the city. The rock is one of the oldest in the world approximately 3,800 million years, which makes it as old as the rocks of Greenland and older than the Himalayas. 344 steps hewn out of rock lead to the top where there are inscriptions dating back to the 3rd century B.C.

The fort played an important part during the Carnatic wars and according to an inscription mainly contributed to lay the foundations of the British Empire in India Atop the rock is the Uchipillaiyar koil, a temple dedicated to Lord Vinayaka from where one can enjoy a panoramic view of Trichy. A flight of steps leads to the mathrubutheswarar or Thayumanaswami temple, dedicated to Lord Siva where the lingam is a projection of the rock itself.

Below the Siva temple are two Pallava cave temples that have beautiful sculptures of the 6th and 7th centuries. At the foot of the Rock Fort are a tank and a pavilion which are used furring the float festival of the temples. Near the tank is the house where Robert Clive lived. The fine sculptures and bronzes of various periods are the attractive items of the Museum.
