Dhurgam Fort, Namakkal, Tamil Nadu, India

Fort Road,namakkal

Namakkal Dhurgam Fort is on the peak of Namagiri and this fort is built by Ramchandra Nayaka. This place is also includes the ruins of Vishnu temple. The fort covers an area of one and a half acres of flat surface and it is reachable from the southwest by a flight of narrow steps. Both the sides of the hill are devoted to Narasimhaswamy and Ranganathasamy that have two rock cut cave temples. The images and temples of Gods inside the temples were hewn out of living rocks. Since they are out naturally, they are maintained by the power of the rock and hill. As a result these shrines gain more importance than the ordinary built temples. The rocks also include eight theerthams that is the holy waters springs, which is the biggest ‘Kamalayam’ or the home of lotus. It is considered as sacred to the Goddess Namgiri Amman. It was considered as the main source of water supply until water from Kaveri was brought. This place also has an idol of Hanuman that is 18 ft tall and is carved out of a single stone at Hanuman temple.
