"Peaceful and religious trip" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
I have been here in August and frankly speaking it is a place where we can loose our mental disturbance. Very peaceful and religious place where each one should visit just to gain patience and increase some beliefs in gods. New rituals and customs I have learnt here.

"Ideal place to go!" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
The City of Tirichirapalli or Trichy in short is located strategically between Thanjavur and Erode. All places of worship are located nearby. The City itself occupies pride of place and nearby Srirangam is the abode of Lord Ranganatha. The famous Dasavatharam Temple. Samyapuram Marriamman temple, Thiruvanaikkaval etc; are all near by. The city is well connected by Roads and rail head and is easily accessible.

There are a number of staying options and one can get decent accommodation at reasonably good price. But be careful to book well in advance for the city is a destination for tourists who flock the place in huge numbers. Food options are plenty and the quality is good and affordable.

Cauvery River flows here and places like Uchi Pillaiyar Temple, Garden or Fort are to be visited. Sightseeing places are very near to destination where we stayed (Rockfort View Hotel) this shouldn't be missed at all.

"Trichy- the attractive city"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 22, 2015
We have gone multiple times to Trichy in the past many years. One of the biggest cities of Tamil Nadu, is very hospitable to the visitors. An industrial and education centre, Trichy is very famous for flowers, fresh vegetables, and any household item. Is considered a shopping centre city with affordable cost of living. Is also a centre for pilgrimage with the world's largest temple complex of Srirangam. Amazing at the size of the complex with multiple praharaj. The Lord Vishnu in the lying posture, is a sight to behold. The Kaveri river flowing by adds to the divinity of the place. A must see city.

"Simple and best"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 21, 2015
We had a great time in Trichy, we stayed in hotel GURU for a day. The hospitality was amazing, the room was neat with good furniture! We visited some temples in Trichy, it was fantastic, food we had was mouth watering. The only problem in the trip was, we had tough time in booking rooms for hotel. Overall the trip was success with many memorable moments in my mind.

"Good and must visit place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 8, 2015
The Trichy city different from other cities, because of it is surrounded with Cauvery River. The climate is also good and rain was drizzling at time of our visit. The town is surrounded with very important temples of Hindus. The town is very spiritual city of Hindus. We visit the temples and enjoyed the atmosphere of temples. Suggest everyone must visit the Trichy.
