Places to visit Coorg

Gaddige Raja's Tomb, Madikeri   
A historical structure, Raja’s tomb aka Gaddige in Madikeri is a beautiful structure extremely popular among the history buffs. The tomb boasts of the indo-sarcenic style of architecture and the most popular attraction here is the mortal remains of the Kodavad royalty and the court dignitaries. There are many other tombs of famous historical personalities as well. 
To the right is the tomb of Lingarajendra, built in A.D.1820 by his son Chikkaveerarajendra. To the left is the tomb of Royal priest Rudrappa, built in A.D 1834. Nearby are buried two royal officials, Biddanda Bopu who died fighting with Tipu Sultan, and his son Biddanda somaiah. This attraction is located just 1 km from Madikeri.

Madikeri Fort, Madikeri   
Madikeri Fort was first built as a mud fort by Mudduraja in the last quarter of the 17th century. He also built a palace inside the fort. It was eventually rebuilt in granite by Tipu Sultan who named the site as Jaffarabad. 
Madikeri Fort, built of brick and mortar, had witnessed several fierce battles. In 1790, Doddavira Rajendra took control of the fort. The palace was renovated by Lingarajendra Wodeyar II in 1812-1814. In the north-east corner at the entrance are two life size masonry elephants and a church is present in the south-east corner. The fort offers panoramic views of the city from its walls. This is a fort with archaeological value and a marvel of architecture. The centuries old Madikeri Fort with its stone ramparts houses the prison, a temple, a chapel, a small museum, and assorted government offices.

Nalknad Palace, Kakkabe  
Nalknad palace, built by Dodda Viraraja in 1792, once belonged to the Hindu king Langaraja, promises the tourists a valued visit and enthralls everybody with its eye-catching paintings and marvelous architecture. Used as a hunting lodge, it is not a palace in the usual meaning. It is a double storied structure used by the Kodava kings. The palace has intricate wood carvings all around the structure. Nalnad Palace is situated at the bottom of the highest peak Thadiyandamol. Decorated with ancient paintings and historical architecture, Nalnad Palace attracts many to its fold.

Abbey Falls waterfall
Abbey Falls is a breathtaking waterfall where the Kaveri river cascades down a rockface from a height of 70 feet. A hanging bridge has now been built across the gorge here offering a good view of the falls. 
The falls can be reached by a narrow road from Madikeri. Cars can reach the entrance of these falls from where a downhill walk of 500 metres (on slightly paved steps) takes one to the waterfalls.

Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, Coorg    
Located on the northern part of Coorg is the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, a thick evergreen forest with a shola grassland habitat. A home for different types of wild species like elephants, deer, leopard etc Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary is a worth seeing spot while paying visit to Coorg. 
Kumara Parvat peak lies within the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, also adjoining with the Bisle reserve forest in north as well as Kukke Subramanya forest in west. Those trekkers who like to experience the wilderness of Western Ghats can always visit Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary and have a great time. The best time for visiting this spot is during the months of November to March.

Omkareshwara Temple, Madikeri   (part of Coorg region)    
Omkareshwara temple was built by Lingarajendra in 1820. It is located very near to the heart of the Madikeri. The temple has both Islamic and Gothic style of architecture. There is a tank in front of the temple and a footpath leading to a small "Mantap". 
It is said Lingarajendra killed an honest and pious Brahmin to fulfill his political ambitions. That Brahmin became a "Brahmarakshasa"and started troubling the king. The king got rid of him only when he brought a Shivalinga from Kashi and installed it after building a temple. The Shivalinga was named as "Omkareshwara" and regular rituals were performed. The bars of the windows of the temple were made of Panchaloha and an alphabet lim has been placed in between the bars

 Elephant Training Camp, Dubare   (part of Coorg region)    
The Elephant Training Camp, which trains the wild elephants with the help of local tribes Kurabas, is under the Forest department. It is a scenic beauty to watch the tamed elephant bath in the river and to be scrubbed fresh by their mahouts. The mahouts will then exhibit the various commands the elephants can comply with. This can be vividly portrayed by making elephants execute some mock logging operations. 
Enthusiastic tourists can opt here for free elephant rides within the camp. One can enjoy the rarest friendship of tamed elephants in this camp, where in one can get a lucky chance scrubbing the elephants and feeding them.
