Being far away from Trichy we just rang up Shri nagarajan who made all the arrangements even without knowing who we are and collected the money only after the Pooja was over. May God bless him with a healthy life to continue this yeoman service

It was a nice experience being there. It's a architectural marvel. There are 3 stories for the temple. Everything built inside a mountain or to be precise in rocks. We can go to the top ganapathy temple and from there we can see this view...More

It will cost you some energy to climb the 200 steps but it’s worth every step. Arriving on top will result in the best city outlook you can imagine. The temple itself is not that wonderful it only gives a nice view in the neighbor...More

Getting to the top of the Rock Fort was absolutely amazing. The temple itself is great, but what I loved the best was the view of the city from above: pretty incredible.

The temple isn't particularly impressive but the view from the top is good. Keeping an elephant at the entrance door is cruel though.

Thayumanaswami temple on the way is a must see.. very nice mural of Siva and unique Jurahareswara idol. Good view of Tiruchi from the Ganesh temple at the top of the hillock. The Palla rock cut cave is also a good additional place to visit.

When I was there, I have used Ola cabs (indian uber). It is cheaper than auto. Autowalas asking too much especially if you can not speak tamil. I recommend Ola if you don't want to use public transport.
