Dolmen Circle - Doddamolathe

DISTRICT: Coorg (Kodogu); TALUK: somvarpet
LOCALITY: Doddamolathe (Lat.12° 42' N; Long. 750 45' E)
APPROACH: AIRPORT: Bengaluru; RAILWAY STATION: Mysore; BUS STATION: Somvarpet

On the peak of a hill called Morebetta at Doodamolathe are more than twenty dolmens enclosed by circles of thin slabs erected vertically, some having rounded protrusion at Centre. A unique feature of the burials is the two big slabs with curved edges and conical top provided at entrance of each dolmen, appearing like arches. Some of them resemble anthropomorphic figures. Excavations of a few burials have yielded skeletal remains along with typical megalithic black and red ware, beads of etched carnelian, a gold-coated copper disc and rice husk.
