Raja's Seat, meaning the Seat of the King is a structure made of brick and mortar and consists of four pillars that are bridged by arches. This place was used by the Kings and the Queens of Kodagu who were the rulers of Karnataka for over 200 years from 1600 to 1834 CE. The seat served as a perfect location for a breathtaking view of the valley and the rolling mountain ranges far ahead. Since it faced the west, it served as the ideal place to capture beautiful sunset view, and hence the Kings and their Queens mostly watched the sunsets from here amidst the lush green gardens and fresh misty air of Coorg.
