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

This temple is located in the heart of Madikeri city. This is a small beautiful temple built by Kodagu King Lingaraja in 1820 AD. A well maintained tank in front of the temple enhances the beauty and serenity of the temple.

Its constructed during mogul's era, so it has its influence, its an temple of lord siva, with siva linga as its deity. A pleasant atmosphere around the temple, a must visit when in... More

Right in the middle of madikeri town, stands tall the Omkareshwara temple. Built centuries ago, this place hasn't lost its charm among the locals or tourists. Though the place is divine and offers a place wherein one can just sit next to the sarovar and experience the peace within, still, for a tourist, it offers nothing much. It is always... More
