Rock Fort Temple, Tiruchirappalli

(4.4/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Rock Fort Temple and other attractions to your Tiruchirappalli trip itinerary using our Tiruchirappalli family vacation planner.
