Visiting Raja's seat Madikeri Karnataka

One of the most common tops of any tour package to Madikeri is Raja's Seat. On looking up feedback of Raja's Seat, most people say, "There's nothing much to do" or "It is basically just a garden where you can't really do anything" and other such inane stuff. What beats me is why on earth it is necessary to do something each time you visit a nice place. Why on earth can't people simply enjoy relaxing and doing nothing at all?! That is what Raja's Seat is meant for - relaxing, simply enjoying the lovely greenery and views. 

So here's feedback of this lovely place in Madikeri from somebody who loved it for what it is - one of those rare green environments where you are not expected to do any of the usual touristy things!
