Nice temple with a good surrounding. The best part is it’s not crowded. There is pond outside the temple. Nice and calm place to visit. The temple is located near the city bus stand and can be reached easily.

It was dark by the time we visited the temple. The temple was very quiet and ideal. There was a water reserve inside the temple with teh fishes and swans. It would be ideal to visit this place before sunset.

Omkareshwara temple is a very old temple with beautiful structure. Maintenance is just like any other temple. Theres a big pool in the entrance where you can see lot of ducks quacking and having fun. It is very near to Madikeri bus stand. The temple has lot of positive vibes and should not be treated as a mere tourist spot.... More
