about gingee fort

With a history as rich as Pondicherry’s, some of the sculptures that you may have come across in Pondicherry were actually shifted from Gingee by the French, when it was owned by them. A visit to Pondicherry, ideally, should involve a visit to the Gingee Fort. After all, how many times is it that you get to stand in a fort once described by Shivaji as the most impregnable fortress in India and was labelled by the British as the Troy of East. Built by the Cholas in the 13 th century on the foundations laid down by the Kons in the 12th century, when you walk the passages of the Gingee Fort you can hear the walls telling their own tale of its antiquity and the generations that have passed it by.
