Madikeri, the headquarters of the district of Coorg (Kodagu) in Karnataka, is a picturesque hill station famous for its lush estates, pleasant climate, scenic location, and almost pollution-free environment.
There are many things to do in Coorg and many places to visit that draw thousands of tourists each year. Among them is Raja’s Seat.
Now a famous tourist spot, Raja’s Seat was once used by the kings of Coorg to enjoy watching brilliant sunsets. A pavilion is perched high at around 3,700 feet, offering a stunning 360-degree panoramic view. Stroll past the blooming flowers and shrubs in the encircling garden, which is also a wonderful area for children to play.
Take a ride in a toy train
One of the most popular thing to do in Coorg, for both kids and adults, is to take a ride on the toy train – a special attraction designed for tourists. The miniature train runs through the garden area and around the edge of the peak.
The ride gives an opportunity for educating kids about the flowers, trees, and shrubs seen on the ride. Available through the day, the train ride lasts only 10 minutes but offers some spectacular views and is definitely a fun-filled experience.
This tourist hotspot is well connected and can be easily reached by car or bus. However, it does include an entrance fee to the garden and an additional fee for the toy train. Conclude your trip with a visit to the musical fountain.
