About Arthur's Seat

Known as the queen of all points, Arthur's Seat is located 12 km away from Mahabaleshwar. Named after Sir Arthur Mallet, the first man to build a house at this point. The point is remembered as where he lost his wife and children in a ferry mishap at the Savitri River. And stood there and stared at the river after that. Arthur's Seat is the only place from where tourists can see the geographic contrast between the Konkan and the Deccan territories. Often compared to the Grand Canyon in the USA, the point surrounded by the deep Savitri gorge on one side and a lush, green plateau on the other. On the way to Arthur's point, people can also see the Tiger Spring, the source of Savitri river and the Window Point.
