1. Abbey Falls
Abbey Falls, also known as Abbi Falls, is one of the most spectacular places to see in Karnataka. Located only 10 KM from Madikeri, the 70 feet of cascading water surrounded by dense greenery is truly a sight to behold. Visitors have to trek around 200 steps through coffee, pepper and spice gardens to reach the enclosure from where they can enjoy unobstructed views of the majestic falls.
Omkareshwara Temple is a unique temple that blends Islamic and Gothic styles of architecture – complete with a large central dome and minarets on all four sides. The water tank in the temple compound is home to several varieties of fishes and turtles. This ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva was built in the 18th century by King Linga Rajendra II. The holy and peaceful ambience of Omkareshwara Temple draws hundreds of devotees every year.
The Madikeri Fort is an important window into the bygone era of Coorg. The strategic position of the fort offers a bird’s eye view of the town. Constructed in the late 17th century and later transformed into a granite structure by Tipu Sultan, the fort that we see today was designed and planned by the British. The clock tower, museum and public library are some places of interest within the fort.
Built in 1820, Gaddige, or Raja’s Tomb is a beautiful Indo-Sarcenic tomb that houses the mortal remains of the royal families of Kodava. The most fascinating aspect of Gaddige is its remarkable architecture – the tombs are surrounded by minarets and Shiva’s bull Nandi is carved on top of each of these minarets.
5. Raja’s Seat
Raja’s Seat is one of the most visited destinations in Madikeri. Tourists visit the garden at the end of the day to enjoy a remarkable sunset while soaking in the views of lush greenery, clean air and beautiful flower plants.
