Rockfort Temple in Trichy

This is the entrance to the Rockfort Temple in Trichy. It's right in the middle of a busy marketplace, a place you wouldn't expect to find a temple right? Rockfort is actually the most famous temple in Trichy, and there are a lot of temples from what I've heard. This temple is built into a mountain and goes up very high so that you can see all of Trichy from the top. 

We climbed up over 200 steps to make it to the top! The view and the breeze up there definitely made it worth it. 




This is a famous Catholic Church that is located close to the Rockfort Temple, that is for a Hindu Goddess. 80% of Indians practice Hinduism but freedom of religion is wonderful to see! It is not like religious disputes never happen, but freedom of religion is more or less guaranteed in India, even if the vast majority of the population is of one religion.
