Visiting Bharatpur

Bharatpur is the home of the World Heritage listed Keoladeo Ghana National Park, one of the worlds prime Bird-Watching grounds. With its 364 different species within its 29-sq-km marshland, including many threatened aquatic birds and migratory routes from Central Asia.
Bharatpur was once an important stronghold of Jats who successfully opposed the Mughals and even managed to keep away the British for a long time. After a 20 years long seige by the British they finally signed a treaty of frienship with them. It must have been a sight to see during its reigning days but today Bharatpur has lost its charm although the fort's sturdy defences remain as a testment to their former glory.
