Cauvery Pushkaram

We visited Srirangam during 10th -15th Sept to take part in the Cauvery Pushkaram puja; till 12th, the water level was not that satisfactory however on 14th onwards it got improved. We like to see the river to flow with its fullest again. Seeing this river at this condition was really sad. Govt. Should do more arrangements for those visiting the place during such religious occasion.
Trichy is full of temples and best time to visit would be July to November; Srirangam Shri Ranganatha Swamy temple visit was worth though it took several hours due to en number of devotees from Andhra Pradesh. We had darshan of Goddess without much difficulty. Other places worth for the visit are Malaikottai (Rockfort) Vinayak temple, Samayapuram Mariamman temple, Gunaseelam Shri Prasanna Venkatachalapathy temple, Uraiyur Vekkali Amman temple and we visited three temples. Gunaseelam temple visit was memorable on 13th Sep, as this was celebrated as Krishna jayanthi.
First time visitors go to Mukkombu, a tourist place en-route to Kulithalai and with water in cauvery river this site would have been very beautiful. In Srirangam, affordable staying can be possible in Yatri Niwas & single, double and dormitory facilities are there. A fantastic food served in the restaurant in Yatri Niwas & free bus service for the temple visit. One can get hot filter coffee in road side shops near to temple entrance.
Srirangam has a beautiful Rajagopuram, the tallest in Asia & so many ATMs. Food is very economical, clean and tasty. We have had hot idlis in night shops and two types of chutney and sambar .. Amazing taste.
Your time will get passed so quickly in riverbed, market and inside temples in Trichy.
Overall it was a good trip.

City with temple, church and mosque in the same street

I went to Trichy to attend a meeting. I coaxed 2 of my friends to join and all 3 stayed in the same room and shared the taxi fare. Though the city is kept clean, I could not enjoy it because there were no footpath. Autos and taxis have no meter. They charge minimum? 50. We need to bargain for trips. Balaji cabs Mr Sakthi (7708219030) was nominal. He adjusted to our change of plans. He helped to find food and toilet. Generally people were friendly and helpful. At the centre of the city itself the Uchipillaiyar koil is there on the historic rock fort. The gothic sculpted church of St Lourde is at the foot hill. We had 'paan' prepared with local special dark tangy betel leaves. Special karpooravalli and malai bananas were tasty though the look dark and unripe. Near theppakolam, hot **** puttu, both rice and ragi, fresh jack fruits made our dinner. My friends enjoyed jigirthanda when I relished sweet and kara paniyarams in the food court. Since Trichy is near Chettinad, I enjoyed vathakolambu, special rice payasam and chettinad chicken and fish fry. Though the weather was hot and humid, the sweet mangos of the season compensated. Srirangam and Thankful with huge temples were part of the city itself. Tanjavoor and Stanislaw were within an hour travel. We should have visited after monsoon to enjoy Cauvery river and oldest Kallanai dam. It was pathetic to see them dry. People are burning and cutting the thorny dark neem trees all over- supposed to be draining all water.

Trichy Overview

History of Tiruchirappalli

Tiruchirappalli or Trichy is an industrial town, with important industries such as BHEL, OFT, HAPP and the Golden Rock Railway Workshop. Situated on the banks of the Cauvery River, in ancient times it was home to the Cholas, the Pallavas and the Pandyas.

Trichy is built around the 83 m high Rock Fort, which is almost 3,800 million years old.

Things to Do in Tiruchirappalli

The Rock Fort is an abruptly jutting out rock believed to be among the oldest rocks in the world. It has the ruins of a fort and a temple on the top. Srirangam (7 km), is an island pilgrim spot in the middle of the Cauvery, with the famous Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple. Thiruvanaikaval Temple is another famous temple 2 km east of Srirangam.

The Mariamman Temple, 12 km to the north, is one of the most visited shrines in Tamil Nadu, dedicated to Shakti or the Mother Goddess. See bronze and stone sculptures on display at the Government Museum on Bharathidasan Road, and the St John's Church (1812), near the Theppakulam (Temple tank).
