Trichy itself has a long history dating back to the centuries before the Christian era when it was a Chola citadel the city and its fort, as they stand today, were built by the Nayaks of Madurai. Most famous landmark of Tiruchirappalli (Trichy)  is the Rock Fort Temple, a spectacular monument perched on a massive rock which rises abruptly from the plain to tower over the old city. Visited this city during Hindu new year and it was full of local tourists, pilgrims and ceremonies.
