Arthur's Seat is the most popular point in Mahabaleshwar. Although, popularly it is called as Queen of the Points, original name of the point is Madhi Mahaal.

The place offers picturesque views unlike most of the points on hill stations, which are just plain ordinary, this one actually does offer some mesmerizing views. Just a tip, visit the place in the evening or early morning. During the day it is just too bright and hot

This point is named Arthur Malet who lost his wife and 1 month old daughter in a tragic ferry accident in Savitri River. Arthur used to sit here and stare at the river.  It was very hot last week when we visited. Also, we have to walk a lot to reach the point. It looks really scary from the top. There is... More
