that must be preserved. The crater has not only
been attracting numerous foreigners to study
the impact of a meteorite that occurred 50,000
years ago, but also tourists from around the
country to enjoy the beauty and visit the temples,
some of which date around the 11th century.
A road moves around the upper edge of the crater
with lookout areas. Unfortunately the path inside
the crater, along the lake runs only part of
the way. Though there are others that one can
stroll along, admiring the beauty and tranquility
of the place. Peacocks and monkeys are sighted
in abundance as are numerous ducks and partridges.
Winter, brings migratory flamingoes.
The soil where the meteor hit
and created the crater is extremely fertile.
The area in and around became lush green and
has led to the growth of an incredible ecology,
supporting numerous species of birds and animals.
The animals and birds visible here are migratory
Flamingoes, Indian Moorhen, Coot, Dabchick,
Langoors, Chinkaras, Peacocks and Gazelles.
