Raja’s Seat – Madikeri


Table of Contents


A Raja’s Seat – Madikeri spectacle of layers of greenery, a chain of high and low-rise-mountains attired with mist, the Raja Garden was a one-time-favorite of the kings of Kodagu who used to watch the setting sun and spend time with their queens here. It is shaped like a small square in brick and mortar, with four pillars bridged by arches, enhanced by beautiful surroundings. This spot was a favorite place of recreation for the Rajas and hence was permanently associated with them. It is built on a high-level ground with a commanding view of the cliffs and valleys to the west. Early in the morning as the sun is just rising in the east, the mist-shrouded valley below offers a rare sight. There is also a Toy Train for children.
