"Sun soaked in Trichy" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
It's a place to visit for anyone who is fond of temples with fascinating stories. It's a place to stop by if you're travelling to other places in south of India via Trichy. We visited the place as a part of a road trip as a weekend getaway with family. The points of interest include the Ucchi Pillayar temple standing on top of rock fort that looks like a hillock. There are over 400 stone cut steps to climb to the top. One needs to have enough energy restoratives to complete the task of climbing up and down! Another temple we came across was the Srirangam temple of Lord Vishnu located in the city with beautifully crafted Gopurams. Not to mention, during the visits, the sun got us drained out with its almost unbearable humid heat. If you're visiting any temples down south, make sure you hear the story behind its existence, they never cease to amaze you.

"Central Tamil Nadu" new review

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Trichy is in the centre of TN, once proposed for making it capital of TN, later dropped. A very Hot city. A small city compared to Metros. Many historical places and city with heritage temples. Cost of living is relatively lesser compared to many other cities.

"Heavenly place in earth to visit"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Nov 26, 2014
Trichy so called as Trichirappalli and in olden historic days it is called as Trichinolply (during English period). The, city is well connected to all places in Tamilnadu. It is majorly called for its historical spots such as million year old rock fort, big Kallanai Dam. Tanjore big temple and Mukumbo dam. It has also NIT, IIM, NLU, BIM, and lot more good schools. From this city one can go anywhere by road, train and airway. It takes only average of 6 hours to go to any place in Tamilnadu.

"A Day at Trichy"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Oct 25, 2014
Take a break from your Office Trip stay back on Saturday or Sunday and enjoy the Lovely Lovable Places in Trichy. You can book a Cab for one Day Trip and enjoy the most exciting place you would like are Rockfort, Ranganathaswamy Temple, Srirangam Island, and Nadir Shah Mosque. Climate will not be so favourable but you will enjoy. When I visited it was covered with cloud and was happy to God for favouring me.

  • 7/7
  • Posted Sep 10, 2014
I had gone there to attend the workshop for directors NGOs of south India. Every one should visit the temple and rock fort. I enjoyed the local food best food stuff is parathas. I was very busy with the meeting so i could not travel much but it was a wonderful place to visit people can travel through train or bus or flights.

"An average destination"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Sep 6, 2014
Overall an average place to visit, not much to entertain and notice. Relaxing atmosphere, normal life and the simple people will add to your stay. You can visit there only for the purpose of fun. I visited tanjavour templ,e sivagangai park and many sites. We also played in swimming pool full of joy.

  • 6/7
  • Posted Aug 23, 2014
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"

  • 6/7
  • Posted Aug 8, 2014
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.
