Photographer's Note

Trichy(Tiruchirapalli) is situated in the centre of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
The name of the town, "Tiruchirapalli", originated as a tribute to a Jain monk called "Chira"; There is also a belief that Tiruchirapalli was named after a three headed demon "Trishira" who performed penance at the Siva temple here and obtained boons.
Tiruchirapalli is home to many historic temples, monuments, churches and mosques.
The spectacular Rock Fort Temple, the landmark of the city, is on the shores of the Kaveri. It is perched on a massive rocky outcrop at an altitude of 83 m above sea level.
