Lord Ganesha High Up There
Oct 2019
The only Ganesha Temple as far as I know of to be so high up. About 417 steps to climb in order for you to meet him. But He never makes it hard to reach Him. You won't feel the pain of climbing. Once you're up there, the view is so good. Scenic panoramic view of Tiruchirapalli.

Great Temple of Lord Vinayaga
Aug 2019
This is a 7th Century temple and is dedicated to Lord Ganesha located at the top of Rock Fort. This is 83 meters tall. There are 2 other temples to be seen before worshipping Lord Ganesha. The first one is at the entrance itself being called as Manicka Vinayagar.. The other one "Thayumanavar Swami" after crossing some 300 steps. There may be totally about 450 steps to reach Ucchi Pillayar. There is no lift or escalators available. We have to walk only. Lord Vinayaka is very much beautiful and He fulfills the prayers of his devotees. We have to be very careful while climbing the last few steps which are very much steep...
We can have a very beautiful sight of the entire City from Uchi Pillayar Temple. We can take photographs from the Pillaiyar Temple.

Scenic beauty and blessing sight
Jun 2019 • Solo
There are three god. At the bottom manicka vinayagar and in the middle thaymana swamy and at the top uchi pillayar. Totally 417 steps. One has to be fit if you crossed 50 years. It is a heritage site. Old pallavas have carved the temple from rocks. When we see the shiva in a comparotively large linga swaroop, the feeling was amazing. Divine feeling. Then we had amman sannathi
Then after you have maha laxmi sannathi. Praying at both these places give you a smoothing feeling. Further if you climb up you can see the east of trichy from hill top. Left you can view both rail and road bridges along with the temple tower of shrirangam. If you claimb further few steps you can reach uchi pillayar temple. From there you can see the entire city. With blessings of lord vinayak you can happily come down withput any tiredness of climbing all 417 steps. This mountain said to exist 36000 years ago. Pallava kings did the construction work by Bc 500

Ucchi Pillayar temple is of old temple and Lord Ganesa is the main deity. Temple is located on the top of Rock Fort about 83 meter tall. This rock is the place where Lord Ganesha ran from King Vibishana, after establishing the Ranganathaswamy deity in nearby Srirangam.The Ganesha 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.On the ground Manickka vinayagar and half the way Thayumanavar temple are there.
