What to experience in Tiruchirappalli?

1 person found this answer useful Useful ?Yes

You need an entire year to see all the festivals that take place in Srirangam temple, as every festival is unique and happens once a year... Festivals happen almost everyday year round in Srirangam

Throughout Tiruchirappalli, antique realms reveal themselves beneath a plating of modernity. At first glance Tiruchirappalli seems like any other small city-laidback, going about its life and in the midst of expanding. But meander around and you will find a city tightroping very finely and comfortably between its legend and the ever consuming 21st century. Its city where you might just learn the fine art of not hurrying and pushing things. As you land in the city of temples, take your first step towards immersing yourself in the city’s distinct rhythm.

Exploring the city, you might not want to restrict yourself to simply taking in the sights that surround you. Be sure to search the skyline for gopurams and gothic spires of the Rockfort temple, Sri Rangathaswamy temple and Lourdes Church looming high, particularly when the sun sets-its an incredible, mystical sight. To be able to say that you have truly experienced and visited Tiruchirappalli you need to have climbed the 437 steps to Rockfort temple, paid tributes to all the temples enroute, stood at the height of the rocky outcrop and looked at the colourful city below and of course, clicked a photograph of it. Additionally, you need to have also paid a visit to Sri Rangam where the massive Sri Rangathaswamy temple sits and explored its entire complex.

It goes without saying that paying a visit to Sri Rangam definitely involves shopping your way through the quaint network of pedestrianized shops and outlets. Finally, a stop at the Kallanai Dam, the oldest water regulating system in the world built by the Cholas, is another must. Experience all this and you can truly say that you have experienced and seen for yourself the spirit of this ancient city.

It is advisable to always book the train tickets well ahead for your journey date. Also, check the PNR status of your ticket, whenever there is the need.
