Private Day Tour: Gingee Fort - Troy Of The East From Chennai

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your hotel in Chennai and driven to the hilltop fort of Gingee.

The fort has three citadels that are located on three hillocks. Each citadel is a self-contained unit. An eight mile long wall runs around the fort that is protected by an 80 feet wide moat.

Walk around and see where the Gingee guards would keep watch. Inside the fort is a seven storied Wedding Hall, prison cells, a military gymnasium, and more. The Gingee has been claimed and reclaimed many times throughout history by different rulers, all wanting possession of this impenetrable fortress. It has been occupied by the Marathas, Mughals, French and the British and then abandoned in the 19th century.

At the end of the tour you will be driven back to Chennai and dropped off at your hotel.
