History of Trichy
Trichy is situated on the banks of the river Cauvery. It is the fourth largest city in Tamil Nadu and is named in the memory of a fight Lord Shiva had with a three-headed demon named Trisiras. It is a flourishing commercial center, well-known for its culture and tourism importance. Trichy is also famous for artificial diamonds, cigars, handloom cloth, glass bangles and wooden and clay toys.
This city was earlier ruled by the Cholas and later by the Pallavas. Trichy is a perfect amalgamation of tradition and modernity established around the Rock Fort. Apart from the Fort, there are several Churches, Colleges and Missions dating back to the 1760s. The town and its fort, now in Trichy were built by the Nayaks of Madurai. This city is also home to many great Tamil scholars who have contributed significantly to the Tamil literature.
