Bharatpur Tourism

Bharatpur is located in the Braj region of state Rajasthan, around 38 km from Mathura. Bharatpur is famous for the Keoladeo National Park, which habitats over 370 species of animals and birds. It is recognised as one of the most popular birds feeding and breeding grounds. In 1982 the park was marked as a National Park, and later in 1985, it came on the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. This National Park, locally known as Ghana, has been a winter home for the Siberian Crane; a species on the verge of extinction (considered an endangered bird today).


Bharatpur is drenched by its culture and folklore can be heard from miles. Ruled once by a myriad of rulers, from Jats to Nizams, to the British imperialists, Bharatpur has its own regal history, enshrined in places such as Lohagarh Fort. An exotic offbeat destination that serves tourists with authentic Rajasthani traditions, religious occasions mark devotion of the state people. Also known as Lohagarh, it is a part of the golden tourism triangle of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra, this place attracts a considerable number of national and international tourist every year. Bharat is also a part of the NCR (National Capital Region).

- Bharatpur is just amazing. Go sometime between Nov-Feb and you will be just amazed to see so many kind of birds in such huge numbers).

- Bharatpur, especially between Nov-Febb season is just amazing. The variety of bird species, their quantity is mindblowing. Take a few walk or cycle rickshaw and ask the rickshaw-wala to tell you about the birds (for additional guide charges). Spend an entire day from 6am to 3pm for a complete experience.

- Loved the bird sanctuary. Do take the guided tours by rickshaw pullers - they really know their birds. Plan on spending the entire day in there - you'll only like it if you have the patience.
- Keep you sunscreen and sunglasses handy. The ride into the National Park would be quite dusty, so go prepared for that. For visiting temples, appropriate rules apply.
