We are 67-old couple
Climb took 15 minutes and was not difficult
View from the first Temple if nice - then we climb another 3 .minutes to the top temple - view is extended to all directions

History reverberates as we take the steps up to the temple. We were rewarded by a great view of town from above. In addition to being a temple, it is a good place to hangout. We could see plenty of people, non-hindus also at the summit. If you carry cell phone, you may have to pay up in the front counter, which people mistake to be a ticket booth to go up.

I recently visited this temple with family.The temple is one of the main attraction temples in trichy.One has to climb some steep steps to reach and get the blessings of lord Ganesha.Do climb in morning to get a very good view from top and carry a set of water bottles.

You have to climb steps to reach this temple. The evening view of this temple is really nice. You can also view the city from the top. Friday you can see people coming here more. Few steps are closed and few are open steps.

We visited Rock Fort during Decmember 2017. I was personally visiting it after almost 20 years and what a lot of change! And all for good too! It has been made so convenient for pilgrims and tourists with handrails and shaded walkways. My mother in her late 60s and with arthritis was able to climb all the way up. Our 7 year oild too climbed it in a jiffy and was extremely excited with all the wind blowing at the top. The darshan to Lord Vinayaga can be made a little better but I guess they have only so much room to work with on top. After the climb it would be better if people were able to see the God a little clearer and without the fear of getting pushed around. But I guess if ytou visit it early during the day it is pretty less crowded and you can wait and have the darshan to your heart's content.

Do visit Mahendravarman's cave temple just before climbing the final stretch. The engravings and the sculpture are very intriguing. Also visit Thayumanavar Swami temple which is quite enormous though it doesn't look that way from outside.
