Travel Agent for Trichy

Tiruchirappalli - popularly known as Trichy or Tiruchi, is situated in central Tamil Nadu, on the banks of the river Cauvery. It is an interesting blend of history, pilgrimage and commercial activity. The city has many years of history and tradition attached to it. It was the citadel of the Pandyas, Cholas and the Nayakas. Since the late 19th century, Tiruchirappalli has been an important centre, manufacturing bidis and costume jewellery.

Some of the important tourist sites in Trichy are:

The Rock Fort is Tiruchirappalliís most famous landmark. The rock has a fort atop and the view from the fort is spectacular. You need to climb the tunnel in the rock to reach the Ucchi Pillayar Koil, a temple dedicated to Lord Vinayaka. Half way up is the Sri Thayumanaswamy Temple, dedicated to Lord Siva, where the lingam (phallus) is the projection of the rock itself.

Nearly seven kilometres from the city is Tiruvanaikkaval, which is famous for its Jambukeswarar temple. The temple has a Siva lingam (phallus) almost submerged in water that flows from a subterranean spring, in the sanctum sanctorum. The architecturally fine temple has five walls and seven gopurams Legend has it that, an elephant had once worshipped the linga (phallus) under the holy Jambu tree at this very site due to which it got its present name- Jambukeswarar.

Located on an island in the Cauvery River, nearly five km from the city, Srirangam is one of the most important pilgrim centers South India. Srirangam is surrounded by waters of the Cauvery on one side and its tributary, Kollidam on the other. The 600-acre island is enclosed within the seven walls of the gigantic Sri Ranganathasvami Temple. The temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is famous for its superb sculpture.

The Teppakulam is a large artificial tank surrounded by colourful stalls and a flower market. It is the site of the annual Float festival. The tank has a flight of stone steps and a very picturesque shrine in the middle. At the south East of the tank is a house that is said to have been the residence of Clive.

Though dominated by temples, Tiruchirappalli has its share of churches. The St. Joseph College Church also called as the Church of our Lady of Lourdes, is a catholic church with an interesting architecture. It is designed as a smaller version of the Basilica at Lourdes in France and has an unusual sandalwood altar. Here, an annual procession, the feast of our Lady of Lourdes is held every year on Feb 11.

The St. Johnís church has louvered side doors that open and turn the church into an airy pavilion. The 19th century church has a memorial plaque dedicated to the Bishop Heber. A walk in the church cemetery is sure to reveal a number of interesting stories.
