Bitten by the museum bug? Well, Coorg will definitely offer some quality, if not quantity in this regard. Yes, the reference is to Madikeri Fort here. This fort is home to an Anglican Church with colour stained glasses, which was built in 1855 AD. The church has been made into a museum under the auspices of the state archaeology department.

Attractions at Madikeri Fort Museum: It is well stocked with numerous curio antiquities from Coorg. A major attraction here is the coveted awards and honours bestowed upon the much decorated army officer, Field Marshal K.M. Cariappa. These priceless relics were donated to the museum by this esteemed gentleman who till date remains only one of the two officers to become a Field Marshal in the Indian Army.

Entry: Entry to the museum is free. Important Note: Photography is prohibited inside this small museum so you will have to capture everything in your heart.

There are several Coorg tour packages which include a trip to the museum and other popular places to visit in Coorg. Explore the town’s history through a small window of this beautiful museum. Trust us, you will fall in love with it!
