Ucchi Pillayar Temple Rockfort Trichy Tamil Nadu India

The Rock Fort temple stands 83m tall perched atop the rock. The smooth rock was first cut by the Pallavas but it was the Nayaks of Madurai who completed both the temples under the Vijayanagara empire. The temple is situated at the top of the rock. The temple is mystic in its nature with an awe-inspiring rock architecture. The Ganesh temple is much smaller with an access through steep steps carved on the rock and provides a stunning view of Trichy, Srirangam and the rivers Kaveri and Kollidam. Due to its ancient and impressive architecture created by the Pallavas, the temple is maintained by the Archaeological department of India. The landscape of Trichy is generally flat and it is natural wonder where Rock fort is standing at 83 meter high. As per archeologists this rock is formed around 3400 million years back hence considered to be one of the oldest rocks in the world.
