About Tiruchirapalli Rock Fort

Tiruchirapalli Rock Fort is touted as the best tourist destination in Tamil Nadu. It was earlier constructed by the rulers of Vijayanagara and later refurbished in colonial rule. The fort complex has two Hindu temples- the UcchiPillayar Temple and the Thayumanaswami Temple. The UcchiPillayar Temple, dedicated to deity Ganesha is built on the top of the rock and is accessible by climbing 344 steps. The second temple, Thayumanaswami Temple is constructed at lower site and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. You can reach this temple by moving few stairs up. Rock Fort is a magnificent landmark in the state and visited by a large number of visitors every year. It is managed by Chennai Circle of Archaeological Survey of India. The recent archaeological survey revealed that the rock formation is older than the rocks in Greenland. A major battle between Madurai Nayakas and AdilShahi dynasty was held at the fort complex. Carnatic region War also took place in the complex which laid the foundation for British in South India. Rock Fort displays the stunning architectural designs of that era. It was a great planned layout during those days to settle the complex on the rock. You will have an exciting experience and find the fort as a masterpiece in the city.
