About Omkareshwara Temple, Madikeri
The Omkareshwara Temple is a lovely place of worship situated in Madikeri. Having an intriguing history, the temple was built by King Lingarajendra II in the year 1820. Legend goes that the king killed a Brahmin (for unknown or disputed reasons) and the spirit of the Brahmin turned into a monster and started haunting the king! The Omkareshwara Temple was built by the king using a Shiva lingam from Varanasi (Kashi) in order to calm down and appease the Brahmin’s spirit. Built in Mumammadan style (Islamic style) architecture, you will find a dome in the centre and four minarets at four corners of the temple building.

Omkareshwara Temple, Madikeri Reviews - Write a Review
Very peaceful place and very well maintained. The temples architecture is inspired from the Muslim mosque style pillars. Opens after 5pm in the evening. Parking is free. The roads leading to the temple are a little steep, so if you are traveling with elders better take the car right next to the temple door.
It's a beautiful temple..well maintained.. You can will v good vibes here...here is a small pond...where you can see ducks...
Normal temple not that great with sculptures or anything else. But the temple is maintained very well. Very neat and clean.
A divine place which gives us piece of mind. They are not allowing people to have bath. A simple yet beautiful devotional place to visit in Coorg.
A big Shiva temple located close to the main Madikeri road is pretty famous among the locales It has a big kund close to the entrance as well which has big fishes Videography isn't allowed inside
