Enjoy the tranquility of a sanctuary built over a pool at Omkareshwara Temple, a small Hindu temple perched on the banks of the Narmada River. Originally built in the mid-18th century, the current structure features a mixture of neo-Gothic and Islamic architecture, with a gilt dome surrounded by four turrets resembling minarets, and the main building painted white with stark red lining. One of the 12 revered Jyotirling temples, the complex serves as a popular pilgrimage site. Check out the pool behind the temple, abundant with fish and frequented by ducks and herons.

  • Temple is small but good . No much crowd .There is a small pond inside the temple . Can be visited if you are in Coorg. Near to Sunset and Sunrise point 
  • It is located in the center of the Madikeri town. Not very famous amonst tourists. Could not find much tourists there. Can spend around 30 mins there. 
  • It's a Shiva temple at Madikeri near to the town center. The temple has unique design looks the top of the temple feels you like a monastery
