Tiruchirapalli Travel Guide

320 km from Chennai, Trichy or Tiruchirapalli lies on the banks of the Cauvery River. The 4th largest city in the state of Tamil Nadu now, it was always coveted by rulers because of its strategic location on the river. It passed through the hands of all the important ruling dynasties of the region, but it prospered most under the Nayaks. In more recent times, Trichy was first a power centre of the French and later the British.

The most remarkable thing in Trichy or Tiruchirapalli is a rock that rears 83 meters into the sky seemingly out of nowhere, in an otherwise flat landscape.
