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.
