Rock Fort Temple, Tiruchirappalli

4.4
#2 of 14 in Historic Sites in Tiruchirappalli
Climb to the top of a large formation to explore Rock Fort Temple. The temple, cut from the rock itself and originally built in the seventh century, offers amazing views of the surrounding city. It remains a site of religious importance, and even features in some local religious tales. Prepare yourself for a climb up the steep steps to the temple, with a high enough gradient to make it difficult for elderly travelers. Once you've reached the top, take some time to view the city from above.
