Bharatpur and Chambal
Bird Sanctuary, National Park and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site – this is Bharatpur! Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary is also known as Keoladeo-Ghana National Park, named after the ‘Keoladeo – Lord Shiva temple’ which is situated inside the park.
Located in eastern part of Rajasthan, this relatively small, perhaps the smallest National Park is actually a man-made ecosystem which in turn has proved to be a safe haven for more than 300 species of birds – both, resident as well as migratory.
In the monsoons the park is transformed into a huge nesting ground for many species like the Egrets, Cormorants, Spoonbills and Painted storks etc. This is surely one of the finest heronries in the world. Apart from these, various species like Grey-lag and Bar-headed geese, Ruddy shelducks, Knob-billed ducks, Red crested pochards, Pelicans, Cormorants, Darters, Sarus cranes and Black-necked storks etc can be seen here.
The best part of visiting Bharatpur is –no vehicles are allowed inside the protected area. So one can walk, cycle or use a cycle rickshaw to explore this magical place to get acquainted with the ‘feathered friends’!
November to March is the best period to visit Bharatpur.
