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.
