At a distance of 2 km from Yercaud Bus Stand, Lady's Seat is a cluster of rocks in the form of a seat on the South West of Shevaroy hills in Yercaud town of Tamil Nadu state. The Lady's Seat is one of the prime attractions of Yercaud.
The Lady' Seat has derived its name from a set of rocks made naturally. The natives believe that a white English lady used to spend the evenings watching the panoramic view from this rock. The viewpoint offers panoramic views of Salem town and Ghat Road. It is a nice place to watch the sunset.
There is a watch tower equipped with telescope so as to enjoy the beautiful view of Mettur Dam and Salem town. This viewing tower is open for visitors only during the day time. On the right of Lady's Seat are Sterling Resorts, Gent's Seat and Children's Seat. There is a mini park and it is a breath taking spot for a picnic.

It is a very pleasant place and visitors can either travel to Lady's Seat by a private vehicle or just walk their way to the place. Though the place is well-connected via all means of local transportation, walking will enhance your trip. It is a must visit place for nature lovers.
