Keoladeo National Park

Formerly known as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, this is an UNESCO World Heritage Site which was once a hunting ground of the Maharajas. This place is a beautiful wetland and a land rich in the diversity of flora and fauna. Though the water supply is a standing problem but this has been compensated by many other advantages. This is also the only National Park which is surrounded by a wall which protects it from the fear of encroachment and any outside attacks. Spread over a large area, this place was legalised by the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 and other necessary laws. This was earlier on an ordinary wildlife sanctuary but was later given the rating of a national park. Migratory birds from far- off countries and the gorgeous wild animals are worth seeing here. The animals are allowed to roam around freely within a given boundary and thus they also feel at home. Wildlife safaris are the best thing you can do over here apart from some peaceful hours of bird watching especially during the early hours of the day.

An avifauna sanctuary, Bharatpur is home to thousands of rare and highly endangered birds such as the Siberian crane that visits during the winter season. Over 370 species of birds and animals are known to have made the national park their home. Over the years, the Siberian Crane has been joined by many other migratory birds like pelicans, geese, ducks, eagles, hawks, wagtails, and so forth. Bharatpur is also home to a wide variety of animals like the Indian rock python, deer, nilgai and more.
