Keoladeo Ghana National Partk

This place is the reason Bharatpur is so well-known all over India. Keoladeo Ghana National Park, more commonly known as Bharatpur Bird sanctuary, is one of the must-vist tourist attractions in Bharatpur, and for good reason. The intensity of wildlife that one can experience in Bharatpur is startling.  Though most well-known for the hordes of birds that its hosts ear-round, the sanctuary also has a rich variety of flora and fauna, all of which makes the sanctuary a wildly active place throughout the year.

The best season to visit this sanctuary is around October- November. Most migratory birds have arrived by then and the chirp and bustle of the place is magnificent. The summer months, when the cranes have begun their beautiful courtship dances, are also interesting months to visit the sanctuary in. There are accommodations inside the sanctuary if you wish to explore the place at all hours. This is definitely one of the necessary places to visit in Bharatpur.

Lohagarh Fort

Lohagarh Fort, or Iron Fort, is one of the strongest structures in Rajasthan, and a must-visit attraction in Bharatpur.

The fort is austere and imposing, and its air of unperturbed strength is what attracts hundreds of tourists to its grounds yearly.

The fort also houses a museum in its arena- the Government Museum. The museum is a good place to learn about the arts of war employed by the rulers of Bharatpur and take a look at the various war related artefacts that were used for defence in the past. The fort also commands grand views of the region, so visiting it is also a visual treat.
