Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary

One thing that comes to mind immediately at the mention of Bharatpur is its bird sanctuary.

The marshlands in this region are just the place for numerous birds to come flapping in and present the most spectacular sight in the world, the Keoladeo Ghana National Park which spreads at the confluence of the Banganga and Ruparel rivers. In the bygone days, the rajas hosted famous (read shocking) duck shoots in the marshes here which were frequented by British dignitaries and fellow maharajas.

Today this marshy area has become the favourite haunt of hundreds of species of birds, including the famous Siberian crane, which comes to winter here.But Bharatpur has more to it than just birds.
