Go in the morning between 6-8am, so that you can avoid a) all the touristy crowds b) heat.
Excellent view of Trichy from the top. Auto driver dropped me half the way uphill, so I didn't have to climb the entire stretch. Great exercise though at the start of the day.

well worth the climb to get a great view of the city. beware of the guy at the entrance after you gone past the temple elephant, he is hanging around the stairs and offers his help, he is a guide wether official or not I don't know, a smooth talker I have to admit but in the end he is asking for money.

This is a famous landmark temple of the city. Again a very old temple which has a chequered history behind it. The temple is on top of a rockwhich is accessible on foot only , that is one has to climb about 344 steps. Aged may not try because the climb is a bit steep.
Excellent views of the areas around from the top.
