Arthur's Seat

  • Queen of all points. Some compare the stratification of rocks on southern side to the world famous stratification of rocks of the Grand Canyon of Colorado. USA. It is fascinating to see the barren deep valley Savitri on the left & shallow green valley on the right. It is more fascinating to know that Arthur's seat is the only place showing geographical distinction of Konkan & Desh (Deccan), two territories of Mahabaleshwar, so clear & so near. If you go by the steps you come across a spring known as Tiger's spring which is supposed to be the source of the river Savitri. Immediately below the seat is window point. You have to go deep by steps to reach the window point. Kates Point: Offers breath-taking view of Krishna valley & deep waters of the Dhom dam. From southern side it looks like an elephants head. There is also an echo point.
