Coorg Diaries : Raja’s seat or The Seat of the King

Raja's Seat , coorg, sun rise, sun set

I have been talking about the beauty of Coorg in the previous post. But there is one spot from which you can witness the most beautiful views of Coorg. Golden rays of coming out through the foggy morning.

In order to witness the daily miracles of nature, the sunrise and sunset, the Kings of Coorg chose a particular spot. That place is known as Raja’s (King’s) Seat and it turned out to be a great tourist spot after the era of Kings.

The king wanted to have a commanding view, so he built it that way.

Even though there would be some rare chances of war, the king’s life is not at all bad! Its like the pictures with quotes saying ” wake up ,be awesome, sleep and repeat”. Building a spot just for having a beautiful view, building somethingΒ  in memory of someone, Life of a king is cool man!Β πŸ˜€

This is what the King built to savour the beautiful view. The Raja’s seat.

I was lazy to wake up early in the morning, and I missed the sun rise. So I had to satisfy myself with the foggy morning views only.Β  Even that view was gorgeous.

Looking at the Road far below was a great time pass.

A little bit of exploration outside the Raja’s seat lead me to a small town. Even the town looked beautiful to me in that foggy morning.

Hope you will forgive me for not waking up a little earlier and missing the sunrise. Maybe it’s because of the fog, that I missed it.Β  Maybe next time! πŸ˜‰

  1. Got to know about your blog from your post on Tripoto. And I feel lucky to be here. Adding your blog to my favorites. And yes, Coorg is awesome. I have been there and would like to go again.

  2. A beautiful view to be sure, but we also have beautiful views from where ever we are. The trails within the forest the king looks down upon, would have a different but perhaps a more up-close and personal view.

    Thank you for the journey! and the beauty shared from another perspective. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, there are a lot of beautiful places all around us. But earlier days these kind of special views might be monopoly of Kings. Even now there are certain views only rich people could afford!
      Thank you for appreciating the beauty πŸ™‚

  3. Stunning views πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Standing there and watching the blanket of cloud,it must feel like stepping in heaven πŸ˜€

  4. All the pictures are gorgeous but I am fascinated by the Raja’s Seat. I assume no-one is allowed onto it now, but how was it accessed in the past? Is there an inner stair? Was it a pyramid of elephants? πŸ˜€ I think my favourite shot is the bus on the road with the headlights cutting the gloom πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you.
      I don’t think he sat on top of that.oops His excellency sat on top of that πŸ˜‰ Maybe inside the structure as a shelter. Well now its a tourist place, so they have modified lot of things.
      Well about the bus. At last some one has noticed. Even though it was kinda blurry I wanted to add it because it had some element of drama in it. Thank you for noticing the picture. πŸ™‚

          1. πŸ™‚ I love sunset and sunrise colours …but doesn’t mean others are not good… πŸ™‚ rest of them are lovely too..first one is special..
