Sitting serenely along the banks of the River Cauvery in Coorg is the small village of Kanive. It is situated about 9 kilometres north of Kushalnagar, 39 kilometres north of Madikeri and just a mere 7 kilometres away from Somvarpet. There are no railway stations located in a 10-kilometre-radius of this village, offering tourists complete solitude and a good break away from the bustle of everyday life. Of course, this means that road connectivity is the best option to reach here. The access roads from nearby towns such as Kushalnagar, Somvarpet and Madikeri lead you to this village.

The age-old village has been drawing a virtuous reputation due to the Sri Ramalingeswara Temple situated here. It is believed to be one of the oldest and most renowned Karnataka temples.

As legend has it, Lord Rama is believed to have installed a Shiva linga at this holy sanctum all by himself. He is then said to have performed certain prayers over the linga in order to attain relief from killing Ravana (Brahma Hathya Dosha). This is what makes this village a must-visit place for worshippers of Ram and Shiva alike.

The pious Coorg temple is situated along the banks of the River Cauvery. It is about 6 kilometres away from Kushalnagar and 15 kilometres away from Madikeri by road. During the auspicious festival Rama Navami, events such as Rathosthava and Jathra are held here with utmost pomp and joy. This is also perhaps the best time to visit this divine place.

During your family trip to Coorg, you simply cannot miss a chance to visit this noble village of Kanive, which houses such a divine sanctum. The sanctum allows you and your family to seek blessings of Lord Rama and Shiva. It also allows you to bask in the peace and quiet of its verdant surroundings. Also there are various lesser known places to visit in Coorg during your family holiday such as Kakkabe and Kutta.
