Rock Fort Temple, Tiruchirappalli

4.4
#2 of 19 in Sightseeing in Tiruchirappalli
Geologic Formation Religious Site
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.

Where to stay in Tiruchirappalli

The main area to look for accommodations in Tiruchirappalli lies to the south of town. This district contains the majority of hotels in the city, as well as the main train and bus stations. Giving good access to such transport links, as well as some of the more popular restaurants in town, this district serves as a good option for those planning on staying just a short while, with the sights to the north all accessible by bus. If you're planning on staying for a little while, consider looking further to the north, where you'll find a number of guesthouses close to the temples and main bazaar.
