The most spectacular bird sanctuary of India.
The Keoladeo Ghana National Park is a celebrated avifauna sanctuary based in Bharatpur, Rajasthan. It was once referred to as the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary and is now a World Heritage Site, home to thousands of birds. Its position on the Gangetic Plain is one of the main contributors for it attracting an extensive range of migrant birds and fauna. The sanctuary is frequently visited by ornithologists who hope to catch a glimpse of several protected birds that are native to the region.
The Protected Sanctuary
Popularly dubbed the ‘Bird Paradise’, the National Park is an important tourist destination, as it is one of the finest bird watching locales in Asia. The park sees well over 100,000 people as traveler traffic annually, many of whom are delighted with the 43 species of fish fauna. It is best visited during the winter season for the amiable temperature at the time.
