PADI IGGUTHAPA TEMPLE
The Nalknad Palace was built in 1780-1789 by the then Coorg King Linga Raja after escaping from the captivity of Tipu Sultan in Srirangapatna and is situated on the bottom of the Thadiyandamol peak. It is of immense archaeological importance. It is not a palace in the true sense of the word but still has beautiful architecture and paintings to its credit. The palace has detailed wood carvings all around the structure and is decorated with ancient paintings.
The Padi Igguthappa is one of Coorg's most important temples. It is dedicated to Igguthappa another name for Lord Subramanya and is an important temple of the Kodav's, the tribal inhabitants of Kakkabe. Built by Lingarajendra during 1810, it resembles the temples of Kerala in style and architecture. This temple governs significant role in the cultural and traditional life of the place.
Thadiyandamol is the highest peak in the Kodagu district of Karnataka standing almost 1746 meters above sea level.
