On the banks of the Kaveri River (also Cauvery) in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, the historical city of Tiruchirappalli, popularly known as Trichi, is located. Located 320 km from Chennai (Madras) and 150 km from Madurai, this citadel of the Chola Dynasty, renowned for its profound wisdom of the Sangam Period, still bears the age-old aura that surrounds it.
Trichi has a long history that stretches back to many centuries before Christ was born. It was once the citadel of the mighty Cholas, South India ‘s acclaimed dynasty, which left its cultural identity in different fields, such as music , literature, heritage, etc. The city fell to the Pallavas later on. The Pallavas were unable to maintain control of this strategic region, however, and lost it to the Pandyas.

On the banks of the Kaveri is the magnificent Rock Fort Temple, the city’s landmark. At an altitude of 83 m above sea level, it is situated on a huge rocky outcrop. Situated halfway to the top is the Thayumanaswamy Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva (the destroyer in the Hindu trinity). It has a hall of 100 pillars and a gold covered Vimana.
One of the most revered shrines dedicated to Lord Vishnu in South India, and one of the largest temple complexes in India, is the Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple (Srirangam), situated 6 km north of the city. The temple is founded on an island in the middle of the Kaveri, veiled in a haze of coconut palms far to the north, and covers an area of 2.5 sq km.
Located just 2 km east of Srirangam, the Jambukeshwara Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, houses five concentric walls and seven gopurams. Legend has it that
under the holy Jambu tree, an elephant once worshipped the Lord, and hence the name Jambukeshwara. The Shiva lingam, almost immersed in water that flows from the subterranean spring in the sanctum sanctorum, is the principal deity.
