Famously known as Trichy, Tiruchirappalli is a city in the state of Tamil Nadu, in Southern India. It is one of the oldest inhabited places in the state. Different empires have ruled over the region with each empire leaving behind its own legacy. This has resulted in the city being bestowed with rich cultural heritage and tradition.

Just to name a few, the important structures are Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, Viralimalai Murugan Temple, Samayapuram Mariamman, Jambukeshwarar Temple, Temple, Nadir Shah Mosque, St John’s Church and St Joseph’s Church. However, the most famous landmark of the city is the Tiruchirapalli Rockford. This massive structure is constructed on an 83 meters high rock.

This complex houses many monuments such as Ucchi Pillayar Temple, Thayumanaswami Temple, Ganesha Temple and a Madurai Nayak-era Fort.\r\n\r\nModern day Tiruchirappalli wears a cosmopolitan outlook. The city witnessed a transformation into an educational hub in the last few years, with many important educational institutions being set up.
