A paradise of feathered life, this park is a treat for birdwatchers, nature lovers, artists, biologists and photographers.<br />The park comes alive with the first showers of monsoon, when thousands of birds like the egrets, storks, darters, ibises, herons, spoonbills, jacanas and other birds get busy courting, mating and nesting. <br />Apart from the Saras cranes, migratory bareheaded water fowls and the grey lag geese, there are many types of ducks too in this park. Pintail, widgeon, common shel duck, ruddy shel duck. Shoveller, garganey, teal, green winged teal, mallard and pochards are the ones to name a few. Attracted by the heavy influx of the water - fowl, the predatory birds like the tawny eagle, spotted eagle, short toed eagle, imperial eagle and the fishing eagles frequent this place.<br />All together they form an apex of the biological pyramid of the sanctuary and complete the food chain of the eco-system. Other than birds, one can also see herds of Nilgai, chital, wild boar, feral cows and sambhar. <br />
  • Location

    The geographical location of Bharatpur is ideal, since it is on the main North - South avian route of India. The park covers the total area of 29.89 kms including lakes.<br />Colourful Kingfishers, graceful pelicans, rare Siberian cranes and Trans continental fliers, the migratory water fowls are amongst the 375 species of birds found in this internationally acclaimed, Keoladev National Park. The most spectacular are the 10,000 nests build by the egrets, storks, herons and the cormorants, every year.<br />
Lohagarh FortAs the name goes, Lohagarh or the iron fort was actually an invincible frot of the past. The fort conceived by Maharaja Surajmal, founder of Bharatpur, was built in the 18th century in the heart of the Jungle. The massive structure has survived many attacks by the British. There are three palaces inside the fort, Kishori Mahal, Kothi khas and the Mahal khas worth a visit. \r\nOut of the eight imposing towers of the fort, few still stand high. Most important amongst them are the Jawahar and the Fateh burj, which were built by King Surajmal to commemorate his victories over the Mughals and the British respectively. The coronation ceremony of the Jat rulers of Bharatpur was also held at the Jawahar Burj.
The Palace and the MuseumThis royal edifice is a fusion of the Mughal and Rajput architectural styles with magnificent apartments and intricately designed floor tiles having interesting patterns. It also houses a rich collection of artifacts, exquisitely carved sculptures and ancient inscription can be admired in the Government museum located inside the palace. The displays show the development of the rich heritage in the region.
