Raja's tomb aka Gaddige is an archaeological site in Coorg and is a protected monument, but however, the place needs a little more attention.
The Indo- Sarcenic Muhammadan style monument has three tombs. On top of the corners, carvings of Nandi can be seen and Lord Shiva is worshipped inside the tomb.
The intriguing factor of this monument is the confluence of Mohammadan style architecture and Hinduism based carvings and that labels it as one of the Coorg tourist places which are offbeat and something different to offer.
Gaddige is situated in Mahadevpet which around one and a half kilometres away from Madikeri. This is an ideal hilltop escape that is shrouded with stories from the past.
