Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / Tiruchirappalli District / Tiruchirappalli / Rock Fort Temple
Climb to the top of a large formation to explore Rock Fort Temple. The temple, cut from the rock itself and originally built in the seventh century, offers amazing views of the surrounding city. It remains a site of religious importance, and even features in some local religious tales. Prepare yourself for a climb up the steep steps to the temple, with a high enough gradient to make it difficult for elderly travelers. Once you've reached the top, take some time to view the city from above. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Rock Fort Temple by using our Tiruchirappalli trip planning tool.
