What to see?
While in Mahabaleshwar, there are a number of points or spots to be seen. The well known point among them is the Arthur's Seat. According to history, Sir George Arthur, Governor in 1841 was fond of sitting on the rock at this place. That’s why it is called "Arthur's Seat". It provides a panoramic view of deep valley of Savitri in Konkan and the dense forest called "Bhrahmaaranya". This point has three other smaller points like Echo Point, Hunting Point and Tiger Spring Point around it.
