Besides being a eco-tourism hotspot since being located on an advantageous position on the Western Ghats, Coorg is also fancied by a good number of holidayers and study tourists as a place offering monuments of historical importance. The most significant among a handful of historically significant attractions in Coorg is the Omkareshwara Temple established in Muhammadan architectural style in 1820 by king Lingarajendra II. This temple features a dome at the center besides four corners with turrets. Legend says that the king hand built the temple to appease the vengeful spirit of a pious Brahmin slain by him unjustly.
