Raja's Seat, Kodagu (Coorg)

3.7
#3 of 20 in Parks in Kodagu (Coorg)
Breathe in the fresh and regal air at Raja's Seat, a neatly arranged garden offering an uninterrupted view of the surrounding mountain landscape. Popular with the kings of Kodagu, the gardens became a favorite with successive rulers, who came to take in the mist-covered peaks and setting sun. Take a stroll through the gardens to see its pleasant artificial fountains, landscaped lawns, flower beds, and monuments. Planning Kodagu (Coorg) trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • The area is a good view point of the local valley. No real standout feature but a pleasant outlook nonetheless.  more »
  • Nothing great about this place. You get to see valley view within the town itself. Surrounded by a garden but nothing great. May be a good misty , cloudy view in monsoon.  more »
  • It's just a park for a view of the valley and mountains Good for clicking pics . View of the sunset is good, but it's good from anywhere. Nothing really special  more »

  • Worth the five rupees they charge you. The main view is great no doubt but there is a short platform at a distance which is reachable by a small path. That view is better than the intended view. A nice small garden adds to the beauty.
  • I visited this place during may end to see the sunset. Monsoon had started at that time. This place was completely filled with fog though i managed to click few pics of the place. The place is green and well maintained. There is a toy train. Fun for kids. There are food stalls too outside the garden. A must visit for the view from this point
  • Good experience. There is a nominal fee to enter this park. One good thing I noticed was the security does not allow anyone to carry any food items inside. Because if this the area is not littered. We visited Raja Seat on a Saturday evening. The place was crowded. View from the viewing point is magnificent. Overall, we had a nice time here.
  • It's a lovely park with a great view of the valleys. The entrance to this park has a nominal fee of Rs5/-. It's neatly maintained. It's a great place for family outings and to watch sunrise or sunsets.
  • Very good place to b with family members. But paying 40 rp for vehicles parking charge is heavy. No security for vehicles, but they take charges. Simply waste of parking charge. But some other things like out side of entry gate many food staff can get. Good street snacks.
