The Raja’s Seat
The Raja’s Seat (or the King’s Seat) was believed to be a recreational spot for the kings and the queens where they witnessed the sunsets. With the seasoning blossoms adding to the scenery’s merit, the spot arrests your attention to the cliffs and valleys to the west. The mist locking the golden array of sunlight persists to be a splendor to track.

A noteworthy moment for my family and I at the Dubare Forest Camp was the crossing of Kaveri River by foot instead of taking a boat ride on our way back. To tread on stones while letting the narrow creeks tickle our feet is one of the pleasant experiences we indulged in on a flushed afternoon.

Tibetan Temple, Bylakuppe.
The meekly bolting Golden Temple of Bylakuppe accommodates the largest Tibetan settlement in India. The forty-feet tall gold Buddha at the helm, is bound to be a popular tourist destination. The paintings of deities and demons of the Tibetan Buddhist mythologies on the walls render to whetting interests of the onlookers. The gongs resonating in a placid rhythm from the Namdroling Monastery modestly allies with the chatters from the Tibetan market near the temple.
