Situated in Karnataka, Madikeri is a hill station and a famous tourist destination. There are numerous tourist spots in this hill town such as Raja Seat, Madikeri Fort and Omkareshwara Temple. Raja Seat, a square shaped mantapa in brick was a preferred spot for relaxation and recreation right from the time of the Rajas and thus named so. The place commands a fine view of the cliffs and valleys around. Another must visit place is the Madikeri fort which was constructed by Mudduraja in the late 17th century. The fort was renovated many times later by rulers like Tipu Sultan, Doddavira Rajendra, British and Lingarajendra Wodeyar II and now houses a prison. Situated at the heart of the town, Omkareshwara temple was constructed in 1820 by king Lingarajendra. The origin of River Kaveri is situated at Talkaveri not far from Madikeri. A temple dedicated to Kaveri Amman is found here.
The bus was smelling and the blankets were also dirty.. timings were also not clearly intimidated.
Bus was clean and was on time. bus driver could have informed the passengers that he had stopped for a break and for how much time ! we wondered why the bus had stopped and then found out it was a break. i will use sea bird tourist again and book via redbus
It was a pleasant journey by Seabird. It does not meet Airavat standards. Departure as well arrival was on time.
BUS STOPPED NEAR ABOUT 01 HOURS ON THE WAY TO PICKUP THE PASSENGER FROM BUS STATION AND THIS WAITING TIME FOR LOCAL PASSENGER WAS REALLY HARD WE SHOULD THINK ABOUT THE PASSENGER WHO HAD BOOKED THE TICKET AND SHALL RESPECT THEIR COMFORT AND TIME
