HolidayIQ Reviewer Pallavoor Subramanian shares, “Lord Shiva temple; The temple, dedicated to that curer of all that is Vigna is a must visit for anyone visiting Trichy. The trip to Trichy is not complete unless one visits the temple located on a hillock. ...Here the Lord is known by the name of 'Thayumanvar' meaning he also acted as a mother when required.”

Religious place

The place is very hot and summer is a bad time to visit. But as we dont usually find the right time and day-offs for travelling, me and my friend were prepared to visit. We stayed in a homestay(AirBnB) which was at around 20 kms away from the Srirangam Temple. We hired Ola cabs and autos everywhere(convenient).
The temple is supposed to be crowded on Saturdays.The entrance where we need to take ticket for the camera(50/-), also has a small ticket(20/-) for gopuram view. The entrance has 3 gopurams. They will take to the terrace where we can get a nice view of all the gopurams.
The temple has 3 categories of darshan. Free, 50/- and 250/-. All these are only for the way to reach(skipping queue). They wont even allow 5 seconds to see the god and keep pushing. The architecture of the temple is very good.
We finished everything within 2 hours, it was not choking crowded. The place was hot though.
Best time to visit is in winter, Nov to Feb, when the weather is cool.
At 2 kms from Srirangam temple, is Jambukeshwar temple. Both these temples are on island.
At around 5 kms from Jambukeshwar temple, outside the island, is Rockfort temple. There is a church right opp. to the entrance to Rockfort temple on the road. The rockfort entrance road is a paradise for local street shopping. There are a couple of hotels and snack centers as well. To reach Rockfort temple which is on a small hilltop, there are steps to climb. The view from the top is good.
The place is very hot as such and Summer is not a good time to visit. Best time to visit is Nov to Feb. Carry umbrella, sunscreen , water and keep yourself hydrated at all times.

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).

There is so much to see in Trichy.
