Bharatpur


Brief

Once the hunting estate of the Maharajas, with daily shoots, recorded upto 4,000 birds, the Keoladeo Ghana Painted Stork, Bharatpur Bird SanctuaryNational Park, is one of the finest bird sanctuaries, with over 360 species, which even non ornitholoists visit.

History

It holds an important place in Indian history. The Jats, have dominated this region from the 17th century, and Suraj Mal has been the greatest ruler, who made them a formidable force. They successfully opposed the Mughals, on more than one occasion and their fort at Bharatpur withstood an attack by the British in 1805 and a long siege in 1825. This siege eventually led to the signing of the first treaty of friendship between the Indian states of northwest India and the East India Company. Of the remnants of the royal past, remains the marvelous Bharatpur Palace, housing a rich repository of ancient exhibits dating back to the early 15th century.

Culture
Bharatpur is popular for its bird sanctuary - the Keoladeo Ghana National Park. One of the finest in Asia, with a rich avian variety, every year the rare Siberian cranes come to spend the winter in the warmer climate of Bharatpur. Paintings and carpet weaving are the cultural traditions here.India Holidays

Lohagarh Fort, BharatpurLohagarh Fort
The Lohagarh or the Iron Fort, remained invincible to many British attacks. The massive iron structure, built in the early 18th century, is very different from the other forts in the state, as there is no flamboyance associated with this fort but generates an aura of strength and magnificence.Some interesting monuments in the fort, are Kishori Mahal, Mahal Khas and Kothi Khas. The Government Museum within the fort, has a rich collection of antiquities, exquisite sculptures and some ancient inscriptions. These are of immence historical value, and the royal lineage as well as the record of local life of the bygone era, can be traced back.

Deeg
This small but interesting town, is strewn with massive fortifications, stunningly beautiful gardens, magnificient palaces and a colourful bazaar. It is actually more interesting than Bharatpur itself and is an easy day trip, from Agra, Bharatpur and Mathura. Formerly the second capital of Bharatpur, it is the site of a famous battle, in which the Maharajas forces, successfully withstood a combined Mughal and Maratha army of some 80,000 men.India Holidays
