Keoladeo Tourism Activities

  • Cycles, rickshaws and boats are available for excursions into the Park. Longer walks and rides are also available – just ask your guide

  • Expert guides and naturalists accompany all visitors in the park

  • Day visits can also be made to the Ranthambore and Sariska National Parks. Game drive safaris are available in these parks too.

  • Visits can also be made to the Lohagarh Fort, a legendary fort that true to its name (Iron fort) withstood four assaults from the British. Unlike other forts in the state this one is understated but exudes magnificence. The fort also has other interesting monuments inside its periphery that make it an excellent day or picnic outing.

  • A government-run museum is also located inside Lohagarh fort. The museum buildings were originally built by Maharaja Balwant Singh in the first half of the 19th century. The museum was formally opened in 1944 to the general public. It displays more than 4,000 artefacts pertaining to the local princely and community cultures.

  • The Bharatpur palace is an architectural mix of Mughal and Rajputana styles. It has been built in various stages by successive Maharajas.

  • The bird sanctuary is flanked by around fifteen villages that show a good blend of how the sanctuary and the environments around live a symbiotic life. Ever since the grazing rights of the villagers were abolished they have taken to other avenues to use the park’s abundant ecosystem to their advantage. The villages around Bharatpur now have some of the best apiaries in India.

  • Deeg Palace around 30 kms. from Bharatpur is a massive fortress that was the summer capital of the rulers of Bharatpur.
