Though an ancient temple town, Tiruchirappalli (nullalso referred to as Trichy) is cosmopolitan at heart. Nestled on the banks of the Cauvery River, it is Tamil Naduâs fourth largest city after Chennai, Coimbatore and Madurai. Synonymous with Trichy is the Rock Fort Temple perched on the spur of a promontory. An iconic landmark, it offers a birdâs eye view of the cityscape dissected by the Cauvery. Trichyâs wealth of temples can be accredited to the Pallava and Chola kings who ruled the region for centuries, and left behind a legacy of architectural marvels. Every temple here is steeped in mythology and folklore, thick with immaculate sculptures, and an endless source of hope and inspiration to the locals.
