About Coorg:

Coorg or Kodagu  as it is officially known as one of the tiniest district in the southern part of Karnataka covering an area of 4,104 sq Km.

Coorg or Kodagu (originally called Kodaimalenadu) means ‘dense forest on steep hill’. Coorg, dubbed as the Scotland of India, lies on the Western Ghats.

There are many versions behind the origin of the name Kodagu. According to the Puranas, Kodava is the redifned name of Krodhadesa, meaning ‘Land of Anger’, said to have been inhabited by the Kodava tribe.

While for some, it is believed to have been named after the River Cauveri, where ‘kod’ means ‘give’ and ‘ava’ means ‘mother’ – which means Cauvery is the ‘mother to the people’.

Few believe the name originated from the Kannada kudu which means ‘dense forest’ on a steep hill. It is said that the history of Coorg dates back to as early as 888 AD.

The kingdom was ruled by many dynasties, starting with Gangas of Talakad, Kadambas, Cholas, Kongalvas, Changalvas, Hoysalas and Nayakas. Information on its early history has come primarily from the various inscriptions on stone and copper plates of 9th – 10th century.

The Haleri dynasty was the last noteworthy dynasty to rule the whole of Kodagu. It came into power around mid-16th century and was founded by a young price from Ikkeri. It was the first dynasty in the history of Kodagu, whch spanned 234 years and ruled the entire region.

Coorg consists of three taluks or administrative units viz Madikeri or Mercara, the District HeadQuarters, Virajpet and Somvarpet. Coorg borders Mysore district to its east, Dakshina Kannada district on the west, Hassan district in the north and the state of kerala to the south.

Climatically, Coorg can be divided into three seasons,

  • Winter Season : December To February,
  • Summer Season : March To May
  • Rainy Season : June To November
