“good climb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

start4ed halfway up the stairs....was still a very good climb with a great view once at the tip. Downside was that non hindu visitors were NOT allowed into the temples along the way. Seems a very bigoted view of guests to me. Not appreciated. but good exercise from days in a car anyways.

“Climb up if you like to have a good view of the city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

This was not a short climb to the top. It may be a good exercise.

But, up there, the temple is very small.

But, it can give you a good view of the town...

“Morning dharasan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

The morning view from the hill top was really exciting. Fresh air, warm sun and climbing made me so fresh and energetic.

“DON'T BOTHER”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

It is really not worth the effort.Save your energy for the enormous Ranganathswamy temple after which this is nothing to bother about.

“Climbing a rock!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Likes:
1. The rock itself. You need to see it dominating Trichy to understand it's size
2. The Rock's history - So many conquerors and so many twists!
3. The view from the top - Just amazing!
4. Solemn temples on the rock

Dislikes
1. Zero guidance to get to the rock - I lost my way twice inspite of two GPSs
