Rockfort Ganapathi Temple By far the most popular place in all of Trichy is the Rockfort Ganpathi Temple. It derives its name from it’s unique building style. The temple structure comprises a huge rock, which is believed to be the oldest rock in the world, even older than The Himalayan Mountains.

The Kallanai Dam is built across the flowing River Kaveri. It spans over 1079 feet and is over 66 feet wide! This ancient dam was originally constructed about 2000 years ago and it is the oldest functional water regulator structure in the entire country. This composite dam and reservoir is one of the oldest water diversions or water regulator structures. It is a primary source of irrigation water for the local farmers. It may not have much else to offer, but the mesmerising view is surely going to be worth taking a detour.
