About: Gingee also pronounced,as “Shingee” is 37-km east of Thiruvannamalai. Gingee is famous for a fort complex dating back to 13th century,located on the 3 different hill summit covering 3-km boundary area. The Chola Dynasty built Gingee fort. The indomitable courage and valour of its erstwhile rulers made Father Pinments,a priest to call the Gingee Fort the “Troy of the East”.
