Your family will enjoy when you go and book taxi. You have many temple guides in hotel to make a move. In trichy you have coffee day, marry brown and other nice hotel to hang over. Breeze residence is best you can prefer and its very low and any one can enjoy star hotel in low budget.

"A place with lot of temples" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Trichy is the destination for the people who love to visit temples. There are lots of temples and that too within 40 km. Near to the bus depot we have many good hotels and tasty food. My advice to new travellers is to check the bus availability and then schedule your programme.

"Excellent place - Trichy"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Feb 1, 2014
The overall travel and visits to the temple in around Trichy was fine. We have visited more than 12 temples around Trichy within 40 kms radius. The roads are nice and you must plan to return to Trichy for the food and accommodation as there are not much good places to stay elsewhere.

"Good initiative for Trichy Municipality"

  • 6/7
  • Posted Jan 17, 2014
I visit Trichy on a monthly once basis. I visit there for official trips. The place is good. One of the things that I like more about this place is the announcement that is done in the central bus stand for the public. It is very helpful. A very good initiative by the Trichy Municipality.

"It is a temple city"

  • 6/7
  • Posted Jan 17, 2014
Well, it can be a perfect holiday destination with family if visiting holy places are on your priority list of places to visit. Also, shopping in the Main Guard Gate bazaar can help save you a lot of money.

Important Places to Visit will be Rock Fort Temple, Thiruvanaikaval Temple, Srirangam Temple, Kalaanai, etc. There are variety of restaurants available to suit your taste buds. For a short weekend religious trip, Trichy is the best place to visit!!!

"A place where religion calls"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Dec 12, 2013
Trichy originally called Tiruchirappalli is a small town yet has a lot to appreciate. Sri Rangam, Rockfort, st.johns church are some places people come from far off distance to visit. Besides the town has numerous hotels and restaurants to relish and have fun. Many shopping malls like Femina, Max and Westside are good places for shopping.

"A simple city!"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Oct 7, 2013
Tiruchirappalli or Trichy sits almost at the geographic center of the Tamilnadu state. Trichy is a very nice city, it is not crowded and not much annoying traffic jam. Its a kind of historical place and lots of old beautiful temples and Churches. I could visit St.Joseph church one of the very old and beautiful church in Trichy. I was busy with my exam, so did not get much time to hang around, so planning for another trip to Trichy later if i got time and need to visit all other places i missed.
