Todgarh-Raoli Sanctuary

Todgarh-Raoli Sanctuary


Todgarh Raoli Wildlife Sanctuary is a sanctuary situated in the middle of the Aravalli hills (said to be one the oldest mountain ranges in the world) and is spread over Ajmer, Pali and Rajsamand districts of Rajasthan. It is known for its natural beauty with hills and valleys and occupies about 495 sq. km of tropical deciduous forests and grasslands. Established in 1983, the habitat is conducive to support a diverse range of floral and faunal diversity. Some of the major floral species found in the Sanctuary are: Karanj (Pongamia pinnata), Tamarind (Tamarindus indica), Banyan (Ficus benghalensis), Salar trees (Boswellia serrata), Dhavda (Anogeissus pendula), Dhau (Anogeissus latifolia), Dhak (Butea monosperma), Katha (Acacia katechu), Kher (Acacia senegal), Kikar (Acacia nilotica), Godal (Lannea coromandelica), Kadam (Mitragyna parviflora), and Ber (Ziziphus nummularia).
Owing to the diverse ecosystem of the park, the habitat supports a variety of fauna such as; Leopards, sloth bears, hyenas, honey badgers, nilgai, sambar, wild boar, wolves, jackals, small Indian and palm civets, jungle cats, and rusty-spotted cats. Birds such as; Crested serpent eagles, changeable hawk eagles, oriental honey buzzards, black-shouldered kites, plum-headed and rose-ringed parakeets, golden orioles, white-bellied drongos, grey jungle fowls, red spurfowls, paradise flycatchers and reptiles such as; Indian rock pythons, Indian cobras, crocodiles, star tortoises, monitor lizards and checkered keelbacks.
Wildlife safaris can be undertaken. To explore further, these are some of the sites that can be visited: Dudhaleshwar temple: An ancient Shiva temple located within the Sanctuary Bheelberi falls: The point for highest waterfalls in Rajasthan. A good spot to observe vultures Katar Ghati: A serpentine shaped road built by British engineers. This is on the way to the Dudhaleshwar temple Dewair: A historical place inside the sanctuary associated with Maharana Pratap. It is the site where he is said to have defeated Akbar’s army
Owing to the presence of villages within the Sanctuary, degradation of the habitat due to overgrazing by livestock, cutting of trees for fuelwood, lopping for fodder, along with the rise of invasive plant species such as Lantana camara are some of the critical concerns plaguing the region.
