As we were travelling back from a hill station with a mind of peace and calm, from Munnar a place in the neighbouring state of Tamilnadu to a busy and buzzing place that our ears can sense to be a prominent tourist destination.
Here we are back to a busy street of people and places around what we have missed in our last visit, 257 KM away at Munnar. So… are you ready? Don’t forget to share your experience with me in the comments ! The first, i have, visited the Ranganatha temple.
This temple is one of the most important and pilgrims come here all year round to attend their ceremonies. Tiruchirapalli ranganadha temple is considered the largest Hindu temple in service, as the largest is Angkor Wat in Cambodia, but it is not active. The temple occupies an area of 631,000 m², with a perimeter of 4,116 meters.
Tiruchirapalli Rock Fort
It is the most outstanding monument in the city, and I am not just saying it because of its location; it serves as a point of reference from any position. This complex was built on an ancient rock 83 meters high. Inside there are two Hindu temples: the Ucchi Pillayar Temple and the Thayumanaswamy Temple. The arrival at the temple goes through a commercial gallery while you are ascending, where you can acquire all kinds of details to make offerings.
That was the day I pretended to be brave, but I had a fever, so the climb was quite hard. But for me, this town meant to meet again that my camera can not miss. This was one of the Places in Tiruchirapalli i explored a lot.
