"Heavenly place in earth to visit"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
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.

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.

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.

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.

"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.
