Trichy is an ancient city, with a rich cultural heritage which dates back to more than 1000 years. The present inner-city area of Woraiyur was once the capital of the Cholas, a hugely influential south Indian power from the 9th to the 12th centuries. The Cholas were major seafarers, and frequently traversed the Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal to trade with neighbouring regions such as Sri Lanka and South East Asia. The resources obtained from this trade were deployed in a temple-building frenzy in the 10th to 12th centuries. This resulted in stunning works of architecture such as the Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple (one of the largest temple complexes in the world) located in Srirangam, Trichy and the 11th century Brihadeeswarar temple at Thanjavur, located about an hour's drive from Trichy.

Trichy is also the home to Grand Anicut, the fourth oldest dam in the world that was constructed in the 2nd century AD. The 7th century Rock Fort temple is yet another example of the architectural and historical splendour of Trichy. Trichy and its vicinity are dotted with numerous ancient temples, big and small, with splendid carvings on stone.

The geographic location of Trichy makes it easy to visit prominent tourist attractions that includes World Heritage sites of Thanjavur, Mahabalipuram and Gonngaikonda Cholapuram, natural escapades of Coutrallam Falls and Kanyakumari, hill stations at Munnar, Kodaikanal and Ooty, and the exotic Indo French enclave of Pondicherry. In addition, the excellent connectivity to Chennai by road, rail and air makes it easy to explore the rest of the country. Trichy is also well connected to international destinations such as UAE, Singapore, Malaysia and Sri Lanka with direct non-stop flights on daily basis.

 

Trichy's location, close to the major seafaring ports on the Eastern coast, has given it a history of cosmopolitanism. The town has historical and deep-rooted connections with the Middle East and South East Asia. The hoards of Roman coins found in the vicinity of the city point to trade connections even further west, to Greece and Italy. The Tamil diaspora, spread across the world, and particularly in South East Asia is testimony to the international connections of Trichy. Trichy is no stranger to international trade, and to this day, rather peculiarly, the Trichy airport has more international than domestic flights!

 

The city also has a culture of education, learning and rich engagement with the arts. Renowned Carnatic musicians trace their origins to the city and its suburbs. The country also has Trichy to thank for Dr. C.V. Raman, the pioneering Nobel Laureate in physics. In short, what Trichy lacks for in size, it more than makes up in learning, arts and commerce!
