How good is NIT Trichy

Tiruchirappalli

Tiruchirappalli is a city in eastern Tamil Nadu, which lies on the southern bank of the Kaveri River. In practice it is almost exclusively referred to by its short name Trichy, which is therefore also mainly used on this page. The city of Srirangam on the opposite side of the Kaveri in the north is well connected to Trichy by several bridges and both have a common local transport system, which is why this side includes both Trichy and Sriramgam.

Background [edit]

Trichy looks back over 2000 years of history and was mentioned in writing as early as the time of Ashoka. Today it has almost 1 million (or as the Indian says: 10 lakh) inhabitants and is the fourth largest city in Tamil Nadu. Srirangam is known as the Temple City and its jewel is the huge Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple in honor of Vishnu.

Arrival [edit]

By plane

Trichy has an airport.

By train

The main station is the large Tiruchirappalli Junction station. As the name suggests, railway lines branch out here and you can drive in practically any direction from here. Srirangam Railway Station is on the Trichy-Chennai railway line.

By bus

Trichy has a large, well-organized intercity bus station. It is only 700 m northwest of Trichy Junction train station and has several stops for city buses.

On the street [edit]

With the ship [edit]

The kaveri is not navigable.

Mobility [edit]

The Chatram bus stand is the central bus station and is just 500 m as the crow flies from the castle hill, which towers over the entire city. It is therefore close to the center. There are good connections to the long-distance bus station and the Trichy Junction train station as well as to Srirangam and the nearby destinations.

Sights [edit]

Churches, mosques, synagogues, temples

Little Alexander Parakeet sits on the shoulder of the Kirtimukha (Kala) on the top of the gopuram of the Jambukeshwara Temple in Sriramgam
  • . This is the huge main temple of Srirangam and can be seen from afar. The innermost area is reserved for the Hindus. The museum is a small collection of devotional objects, open 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. + 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Open: 6:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. + 3:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Last change: not specified
  • . The Shri Jambukeshwara Temple is located 2.5 km east-southeast of the Ranganathaswamy Temple in Srirangam. It is much smaller than the Ranganathaswamy Temple. But there are some beautiful sculptures and it is quite quiet here. Last change: not specified
  • . The Lourdes Church is located 500 m south of the Chatram bus stand and a few meters west of the water basin at the fort. Last change: no details

Castles, chateaus and palaces

  • Trichy Castle Hill ("Rock Fort") is actually a Temple Mount. It can be reached from the south via a somewhat hidden road, which is aptly also called Temple Road, and goes through several temples and past temples. Far up the staircase is no longer covered. There you shouldn't miss the cave temple from the Pallava period. It is ignored by visitors and is unfortunately locked. From the outside you can hardly see the well-preserved reliefs on the sides. The summit temple that all visitors flock to is pretty uninteresting. Unfortunately there is no really nice vantage point here. To the west of the fort is a large water basin from which you have a good view of the castle hill.

Museums [edit]

  • . The Government Museum is open every 2nd Saturday of the month and public holidays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. except on Fridays. It is located south of the castle hill about here: 10.82496111, 78.69588056Government Museum in Trichy10 ° 49 ′ 30 ″ N78 ° 41 ′ 45 ″ E. This museum is quite disappointing for such an important and old city

Kitchen [edit]

Around the bus station, especially on the south-east and north-east side, there are good, mostly vegetarian restaurants.

Medium [edit]

Excursions [edit]

The Erumbeshwarar Temple in Tiruverumbur
  • Located 20 km north-northwest of Trichy Thiruvellarai. There you can visit the Pundarikakshan Perumal Temple at 10.95648889, 78.66757222Pundarikakshan Perumal Temple in Thiruvellarai 10 ° 57 ′ 23 ″ N78 ° 40 ′ 3 ″ E. The unfinished gopuram is interesting. Here you can see what is usually found under the many stucco figures of the south Indian temple towers.
  • 11 km east-southeast, just north of the NH67 at Tiruverumbur The Erumbeshwarar Shiva Temple is clearly visible on a small hill at 10.79243611, 78.76751389Tiruverumbur Erumbeshwarar Shiva Temple 10 ° 47 ′ 33 ″ N78 ° 46 ′ 3 ″ E. Almost nothing has been changed on the old temple. It is not visited very often. Here you can enjoy the view from the small hill in peace.
  • About 40 km southeast is on the edge of the small village Malayadipatti a wonderful little Vishnu cave temple from the 8th to 9th centuries on the edge of a small pool. Right next to it is Siva Temple from the 8th century. The temples are located at 10.654175, 78.89669167Malayadipatti Cave Temple10 ° 39 ′ 15 ″ N78 ° 53 ′ 48 ″ E and can be reached by bus, although connections are rare. The temples are closed from noon until 4 p.m.
The main part of the Pallava cave temple is formed by a Vishnu resting on the five-headed serpent with Lakshmi at his feet. But the other representations are also of good quality and condition. Even paintings are still preserved, but they will soon be black, since the temple is used as such (keyword sooting candles and ghee lights). Unfortunately, photography is prohibited. The Shiva temple is much simpler and the additions to the Pallava part are in the Vijayanagar style.
