  • Entry Fee Rs 15, foreigners Rs 150. Camera no charge, parking free. We went there while going to Karaikudi. It’s small fort on the road. If time permits, visit there.  more »

  • A small fort on a hillock. Not more details available on this fort. Surely it must have been strategically important for the king or ruler who has ruled around this place. Once you get to the top oh this fort we get a great view around the village as well as the highway. A rich which stands on a slope for no reason is a good visit here. As well as a cave temple with shivling gives a great vibes on us.
  • One of the tourist place located near karaikudi. It is a good place to get a breeze. Awesome place to sit back and relax.
  • Need more information board to explain briefly. Carved temple should be kept neat and clean. Well maintained
  • Historical place where the great warrior veera pandia kattaboman brother umadurai fought against British n lost his live.
  • The fort is cut out a rock at the back. The from portion of the rock is cut out into 2 temples. A Shiva temple and a Vishnu temple. The place gets its name after the Vishnu temple. The deity is called Thiru Meyar. Hence the name of the place Thirumeyam. About the fort, the staff of the Archeological Survey of India say that it was a hiding place built by Veerapandiya Kattaboman's brother, to hide from the British. Sorry don't remember his name.
