Sri Omkareshwara Temple, in Madikeri, Coorg, was built in 1741 by the King Lingarajendra II, for exculpation against Brahma Hatya. Built in the Mughal style, this temple involves Indo Islamic and Gothic architecture. There are not many Shiva temples in India that share similar architectural style. Also, Shivalingas that go by the name of Omkareshwara, are also a rarity in India.
The temple’s sanctum sanctorum and it’s entrance is not smaller as one would find in most temples across India. The temple in general occupies a vast and wide area. The weather remains the same enjoyable type in all seasons. The chanting of Mantras can be heard echoing inside the temple.
