Gingee Fort Tour & Temple Visit by Ashok

Learn what made the Gingee Fort an impregnable "Troy of East".

About the Experience

Ashok

Hi, I am a native of Pondicherry, and I have been hosting tours since 2012. My passion for travel and tourism have stemmed from my interests in art, culture and history - which are all Pondicherry's specialities. I am also an active travel host and guide in Couchsurfing. Come, join me on this tour and experience Pondicherry and its unique blend of Muslim, Hindu and Portuguese cultures. I speak Tamil, English and Hindi languages.

Details

With stonewalls dating back to the 13th century, Gingee Fort lets you explore the history of the Marathas. Get picked up and chauffeured to the fort, and explore its three hills with ruins of a palace, temple, mosque, granary, an auditorium, stables and even a harem among other structures. The fort was popularly known as the "Troy of East"; learn its story followed by a visit to the Kamalakanni Amman Temple. Ride back to Pondicherry and conclude the tour with historical learning.

Places of interest: Gingee Fort, Kamalakanni Amman Temple.
