Coorg

Coorg, also known as Kodagu, was an independent kingdom before its annexation in 1834 by the British East India Company. Because of its cool temperatures, lush countryside and abundant wildlife, it soon became a prominent hill station and holiday resort for the British colonial elite. Today, because of its natural and scenic charms, Coorg remains a popular destination for nature lovers.

Abbey Falls

Situated amid private coffee plantations and spice estates, Abbey Falls is one of Coorg's standout sights. A roaring cascade of water that plunges deep into an emerald pool, Abbey Falls is surrounded on all sides by thick forest – making for a picturesque, relaxing stop.

Madikeri Fort

Built in the 1600s, Madikeri Fort has seen chaotic and tumultuous times; it was bitterly contested by a number of powers, finally falling to the British. Today, the grounds of this well-preserved building are home to a church, an archeological museum, and two life-sized elephants cast in masonry.

Namdroling Monastery

A giant monastery home to over 4,000 monks and nuns, Namdroling was established by Pema Norbu Rinpoche after his arrival from Tibet. With 150 buildings, a hospital, and a religious college, Namdroling is one of the largest centers of Tibetan Buddhism in the world – and was consecrated by the Dalai Lama himself.

Omkareshwara Temple

Constructed in 1820, the Omkareshwa Temple is built in the Mumammadan style, featuring four turrets (one at each of its corners) and a large, central dome; the grounds of the temple also house a large water tank filled with fish. Dedicated to Shiva, one of the most influential deities within Hinduism, Omkareshwa is also home to a lingam, a colorful, ornate representation of the god.

Raja’s Seat

Raja’s Seat, or "The Seat of the King,” is a park of fountains and flowers. Named for the kings who once spent their evenings here, Raja’s Seat offers a panoramic view of a nearby valley, and is an excellent vantage point from which to view the sunset. Alternately, travelers may visit this park early in the morning, when the greenery is shrouded by a series of jagged mountains and a thick morning mist.
