The Thirumayam Fort,located around 25 Kms from Karaikudi on the Pudukottai road, is a 40-acre wide fortress in the town of Thirumayam in Pudukottai District. It was constructed by Vijaya Raghunatha Sethupathi, the Raja of Ramnad in 1687. The fortress is of great historical significance and was an important stronghold of rebel chieftains in the Polygar Wars. Oomathurai, the brother of Panchalamkurichi chieftain Kattabomman was captured in this fort. There are two famous rock cut temples in the Fort Complex: a Siva Temple and a Vishnu temple. Shiva cave temple is locally known as Satyagirisvara Temple and Vishnu cave temple known as Satyamurti Perumal Temple.(Above information is courtesy wikipedia).
I present below some breathtaking views of the Fort clicked during my recent Karaikudi visit.
