Bharatpur, a small town of Rajasthan, nestles Keoladeo National Park, the site listed as UNESCO World Heritage. Famous as, Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, it lies between two of India's most historic cities, Agra and Jaipur. It is situated about 190 km from the national capital of Delhi. The name 'Keoladeo' of the sanctuary is derived from the name of an ancient Hindu temple devoted to Lord Shiva.

Bharatpur is mainly an artificial creation to conserve birds, after government banned the indiscriminate shooting of birds in 1965. The area was deemed a national park in March 1982, while in 1985, Bharatpur was accepted as a World Heritage Site.

Places to see :
Some 377 species can be spotted at Bharatpur Sanctuary, making it one of the most inviting destinations in the world for ornithologists, amateurs and nature lovers. One-third of birds at Bharatpur are migrants, many of whom spend their winters before returning to their breeding grounds in the Arctic and Central Asia.

Best time to visit the sanctuary is between October and February when many migratory birds can be seen, including the endangered Siberian Crane. Tourists can enjoy to see the Saras Cranes (the largest bird) and several other species of cranes-corcomorants, egrets, darters, herons, storks, geese, ducks, eagles, hawks, shanks, stints, wagtails, wheatears, flycatchers, buntings, larks, spoonbills, kingfishers, owls and pipits, who have made Bharatpur their temporary abode.

There are approximately 56 different families of birds, of which the Passeriformes (156 species) and Charadriformes (56 species) dominate.
