Trichy - My home city

There are various interesting things in trichy.First what u will come to know when u come to trichy is Its greatest fame Rock fort..

It is an 83m high fort situated at the heart of trichy. Its near the chatram bus stand in trichy.An 10 mins walk from chatram bus stand will take u to the Rock fort. More valuable Statues are found inside the temple.Its said that it is
3.800 million years old. This adds up more fame to this giant fort. The most valuable thing about this fort is materials like Quartz,Felpar are used in its rock formation.

The name of the temple that is above the rock is
Uchipillaiyar Koil.The temple is dedicated to Lord Vinayaka. An whole view of trichy city is possible when u've climbed this 83m high fort.If u attempt to climb few more steps from there u would reach Mathrubutheswarar of Thayumanaswami temple it s dedicated to Lord Siva.U could see a lingam shape from the projection of Rock.Below the Siva temple there are 2 caves with beautiful sculptures honoring them. These sculptures belongs to 6th and 7th Century.

The center of attraction is not the Fort but the temple that attracts all kind of tourists.It requires an 344 stpes to be climbed to reach the temple.The main gate is still not yet destroyed and is still intact from 3rd century.
