  • One of the best temple. It is managed very well. The building, sculpture, locality, scene, surroundings etc are extremely beautiful. The whole place is cool and calm. Ideal for meditation. The priest also gets 5* rating. When we went there, it was around 4PM or so. They offered us free lunch at that time. We had finished our lunch by then, so they have us hot coffee. Can't forget their hospitality. Overall, completely satisfied by the visit to this temple. Definitely we want to visit again. If my review is useful, click on LIKE below.
  • Very device place, good hospitality. Pooja done in a very nice way.
  • Padi Igguthappa temple is about 35Kms from Madikeri. Entire road is in good condition and very scenic. Igguthappa in Kodagu language means, Murugan. Very very peaceful and enchanting place. Only thing is tourists are required to wear traditional wear, such as: Men in Dhoti and Ladies in Saree. Then only, you will be allowed to enter inner premises of the main temple. Else, Darshan from outside. Another important thing to enter inner premises, should not be non-vegetarian. Only vegetarians are allowed inside the inner premises of the temple. Main deity is Lord Shiva with Sri Murugan side to Shiva. Main priest and his brother are very friendly with devotees. They are offering free Anna Prasadam to all devotees visiting to the temple. Morning Breakfast , Lunch and dinner will be served at their residence without any dress code to all devotees. Car parking is free.
  • Nice place.. 1st time visited but it's a great experience.. please do follow the ethnic wear.. otherwise you can't get inside
  • Kodagu's main temple with holy feeling
