Rock Fort Temple

Rock Fort Temple

Rock Fort Temple, Rock Fort Temple travel, Rock Fort Temple tourism, Rock Fort Temple Historical Place, travel to RockTiruchirappalli itself has a long history, going back to the centuries before the Christian era, when it was a Chola citadel. The Pandyas and Pallavas held sway over the region for short periods. In the 12th century, Cholas were subverted by the Vijayanagar kings of Hampi, who proudly withstood the invading Muslims. Less than fifty years later, the Nayaks of Madurai came to power, constructed the Rock Fort, and firmly established Tiruchirappalli as the trading city.
