Raja’s Tomb (Gaddige)


Situated about 1.5 km from the Madikeri bus stand, the tombs of Veerajendra, and their wives, stand together and are exactly alike, Lingarajendra’s      tomb was built in 1809 and Veerarajendra’s in 1821. The Islamic style central gilded domes and the corner minaret-like turrets, each topped with images of basavas (bulls), are prominent on the Madikeri skyline. The windows have handsomely wrought bronze bars set in sculpted stone.
