THIRUCHCHIRAPALLI: Tiruchirappalli: Mosque of Nuthur. India, old print, c1875

Price: £9.99

CAPTION BELOW PICTURE: 'Mosque of Nuthur, Trichinopoly'

Tiruchirappalli (also spelled Tiruchirapalli, commonly known as Tiruchi or Trichy formerly also pronounced as Trichinopoly under British rule) is Tamil Nadu's Fourth largest City after Chennai, Madurai, and Coimbatore with an estimated population of 1,067,915 (as of 2008). It is situated in the centre of the state, on the banks of the Cauvery River. Trichy is a Municipal Corporation and the administrative headquarters of Tiruchirapalli District.

The most famous landmark of Trichy is the Rockfort temple which is perched on a huge rocky out crop. The smooth crop was first hewn by the Pallavas but it was the Nayaks of Madurai who later built the Rock fort temple. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Lord Ganesha.

Trichy city encompasses Srirangam, a Vaishnavite temple and the biggest functioning Hindu temple in the world. Trichy also contains "ThiruAnaikka" (ThiruvAnaikkaval), House of Water, one of the five main abodes ("Panchaboodha Sthalam") of Lord Shiva. Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman was born in Thiruvanaikaval and his house has been preserved as a museum.
