Bharatpur Birds, Bird Watching
Located in Rajasthan, Bharatpur has its share of forts and palaces steeped in tales from the past. There is the 18th century Lohagarh Fort, the Bharatpur Fort and the Dholpur Fort. Jawahar Burj and Fateh Burj palaces, and the Bharatpur Lake are also worth visiting. However, the most beautiful monument close to Bharatpur is the Deeg Water Palace built by Raja Suraj Mal in the 18th century. It has one of the most fascinating water conservation and natural cooling systems, as well as well-laid out gardens.
Bird watching trips at the Sanctuary are a highlight for your time in Bharatpur. During the rains a boat cruise in the lake is a must. Excursions to Deeg and Dholpur Fort can also be arranged.
