About Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary

Most people come to Bharatpur, not to visit the town but to go to the adjoining Keoladeo Ghana National Park, one of India's premier wildlife sanctuaries and a World Heritage Site. Created by the Maharaja of Bharatpur in the 19th century by diverting water from an irrigation canal, Keoladeo was founded as a shooting preserve, but given the status of a bird sanctuary in 1956. Upgraded to a national park in 1982, the area today ranks as one of the best waterbird preserves in the world and is a beautiful tree-shaded wonderland of water-bodies and marshes.
