Sightseeing

There is plenty to see and do in Kodagu. Start off your sightseeing in Madikeri with the quaint and quirky part Islamic, part Kerala, part Gothic Omkareshwar Shiva Temple which was built in 1820. The Prison saw slightly grander days when it was Tipu Sultan’s Fort.

You can enjoy the orange pink sun setting over the hillside from the old Raja’s favourite Seat, after you’ve paid him a visit at his grand gilded tomb! There are more relics from the past at the St. Mark’s Church museum but if you only feel like sticking with the present, and in Madikeri it’s going to be a very pleasant one, then take a hike through the pepper vines and coffee shrubs and head for Abby Falls (8 km).

Elsewhere in the region are Bylakuppe and Siddapura. Bylakuppe (6 km) is a Tibetan settlement for Tibetan refugees and so the area around has Tibetan Buddhist monasteries dotted all along the landscape. Sera Je is the largest with 2000resident monks. Siddapura (32 km) is prime trekking area. Virgin woods and wafting scents from nearby coffee and spice plantations will ensure you have a great time.

Bhagamandala with its sprinkling of temples is where the two rivers Kaveri and Kannike converge. Kakkabe offers several mountain trails for trekking and hiking. Be sure to come back with a bottle of honey for this region is the highest producer of honey in the country.

Other attractions in Kodagu are the Irpu Falls cascading down verdant green slopes. If you are in need of redemption, be sure to visit the temple of Lord Shiva on the banks of the Lakshmithirtha River – the waters here will wash away your sins. No wonder thousands of pilgrims converge here during the Sivarathri festival.

Shopping

All kinds of natural goodies are there for your pleasure – honey, coffee and spices.

Eating Joints

The cuisine in Kodagu is simply delicious – plenty of coconut, spices and curry leaves. Unlike most South Indian states which have a primarily vegetarian cuisine, Kodagu food is replete with non-vegetarian dishes. Dont miss out on their speciality ” pandhi ” curry – it is to die for as no one quite cooks pork like this! There are quite a few good restaurants in town where you’ll be able to choose from Chinese, north Indian and south Indian food. Some even serve chilled beer.

Kodagu has some of the best coffee in the country. Don’t take our word for – go on try some and get hooked for life !
