Rockfort Temple
 




The Rock Fort Temple tops on a 83m high outcrop. This temple was built by the Pallavas as a small cave temple, but the Nayaks made use of its naturally fortified position.  It is a stiff climb, up the 437 steps cut into the stone to the top but well worth  for the view.  Non-Hindus are not allowed into the Vinayaka Temple at the summit and at the bigger Sri Thayumanaswamy Temple dedicated to Siva, halfway up .

        The monument is open daily from 6 am to 8 pm.  Entry is Rs. 0.50, plus Rs 10 if you have a camera.  Shoes have to be left at the entrance near the temple elephant which passes each monotonous day blessing devotees in exchange for money.
