    A place to spend your time in madikeri with family
    When you are on a vacation to coorg you enjoy the climate more as there are not much of tourist points to visit. Rajas seat is one point where you can enjoy with family. Your kids will enjoy the statues of animals and birds. There is a good park to go around, towers to have good valley view and good walking space. Enjoy the breeze even when the temperature is high outside. May take an hour to go round. Do not miss to visit the Amman temple adjacent to the park.

    Raja's Seat - Tourist's important point of visit
    Raja's Seat is located in the heart of Madikeri (Coorg) city. Once you enter the Garden, you are amazed by its beauty ! There are colourful splash of multitude of flowers in bloom and the breathtaking scene with lovely aroma of flowers makes you awe stuck. As you go down few stairs, there is sunset view point and one gets mesmerised to see sun going down in the mountains and slowly darkness engulfs the whole area.At 7.30 pm or so there is light and water show. Lot of tourists throng this place to enjoy the colourful light show. Its must for all visitors coming to Coorg to enjoy this lovely garden with rare flowers and huge topiary designs of animal shape

    Awe inspiring
    We went there at 9 in the morning on a day when it was still misty at that hour. As we waited, the skies cleared and the sun burnt the mists away, to reveal a stunning view of a valley hundreds of meters below. It was one of the most magical experiences of our lives. Astonishing, exhilarating, splendid. Over the next three days, we went there every morning and evening, only to experience a different spectacular view each time. Definitely a bucket list experience - Come to Madikeri if only for this!

    Refreshing and Relaxing
    Located within the town, the place seems to one of the most popular hangout spots for tourists as well as for locals. We visited couple of times and found the place crowded every time. It is a well-maintained garden that offers nice valley view, however when we visited, it was foggy and hence could not get much view. The garden also offers certain activities like zip lining, toy train etc. In the evening, we witnessed musical fountain, which was though small and with music in local language, was enjoyable. The place presents a refreshing setting and enjoyable environment especially for family. An ideal place for leisurely stroll and relax.

    View Worth A King's Evening
    I am not too amazed why the king would choose this place to spend an evening! It's the grand view and clouds above you at a hand's stretch that would make you feel like on the top of the world. A must visit place when at Madikeri. There is an evening musical fountain and hence it becomes crazy crowded. I would recommend you to visit during morning hours.

    Good for Sunset
    Raja Seat in Coorg offers stunning views of hills and valleys, making it ideal for nature lovers. There is a garden, benches to sit on, and activities for kids as well. Despite visiting during the typically quieter first week of March, it was still crowded. Watching the sunset there is a memorable experience, but arriving early is recommended to secure a good spot. I am certain that during cooler weather, this place will be breathtaking. Overall, Raja Seat is a must-visit destination that showcases the natural beauty of Coorg.

It's a lively place which is top of the madekeri hill. It's a park made at the top hill, having varities of flowers and sculpture of animals. Scenarios are beautiful. Entry fee 10 below eight will enter free. Opposite there is a small market and spice Market.

A breath-taking view awaits you! Beautiful scenery surrounds the valley in every direction. It is nature at its very finest, with lush greenery and a spectacular view. In the evening, we see a beautiful sunset, and this will depend on the day you visit as a sunny day will lead to a beautiful sunset. The evening light and sound water show are performed around 19:00. An ideal environment for family gatherings can be found at this location.

Known for its sunset views, this is a public garden with the typical landscaping, children's play area, your usual road side vendors crowding the entrance. And a musical fountain, that some you like to see. Other than that this place is too crowded for comfort. There are better places than this from where you can get sunset views.

You will fall in love with sunsets. It’s a very pleasant and beautiful experience. To add to this the Small garden they are maintaining is very impressive. Maintained well. A bit crowded as it’s popular but you can pick your spot and immerse in the sunset experience.

It is a view point where you can see the clear valley and mountain ranges. The view is just like any other range view points. They have made a park around the view point with animal statues for kids to enjoy.

Overall a very ordinary place.

A nice place to stop at sunset and take in the view but it is very commercialised and busy. There's a load of fairly random statues in the park some of which make sense e.g. rhino, elephant, but others that are just a bit random like dinosaurs and rabbits. Not entirely sure what to make of that!

This place has a good view but gets super crowded during sunset. We felt as if we have come to a theatre and the sunset event is a movie. It being located at the centre of Madikeri is perhaps the most visited place...but this has led to the lost charm of the place. It got unthinkably crowded during the evening and we could not enjoy the sunset much. Even it was impossible to take a picture without random people photobombing. For me sunrise/sunset is always associated with calmness but with the chaos of people there it lost the essence. I will not recommend this place unless someone has nothing better to do in the evening.
