Tiruchirappalli — 4 nights

Rockfort City

Located in the center of the state, the ancient city of Tiruchirappalli--or Trichy/Tiruchi as it is more commonly known--remains rich in Tamil culture.
Venture out of the city with trips to Thanjavur (Ramaswamy Temple & Brihadeeswara Temple) and Sri Ranganatha Swamy temple (in Thiruvarangam). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, pause for some serene contemplation at Tiruchirapalli Rock Fort, steep yourself in history at Jambukeswarar Temple, and see human ingenuity at work at Kallanai.
