Travel to Sariska Bird Sanctuary

Sariska - The Destination

Sariska Bird Sancturary
Sariska in Rajasthan, situated just 200 kms from Delhi, is one of the closest National Parks to the capital. Sculpted out of the Aravalli hills, it spreads over 800-sq kms and is the habitat of the majestic tiger, deer, Nilgai, partridges, wild boar, fox, gaur, sambar, chital, hyena, and the four-horned antelope. The dry deciduous forests are a perfect home to the jungle cat, and the Siliserh Lake which lies at the edge of the Park is the watering holes that has preserved the natural habitat of the region, despite it being close to the desert.
Sharp cliffs, hills and narrow valleys of the Aravalis describe the landscape of Sariska. The forests are dry and deciduous. Go further into the forests and you will notice numerous man-made tanks - a simple but effective method of water harvesting. It is with an optimistic spirit therefore, that you enter the Sariska tiger sanctuary, rejoicing in the fact that heavens such as these exist. And that the most majestic of all creatures can still roam the surface of our planet, unhindered.

Within the sanctuary are found the ruins of medieval buildings. The ruins of temples of Garh-Rajor of the 10th and 11th centuries are scattered in the jungle. A 17th century castle on a steep hilltop at Kanwari, provides a panoramic view of flying Egyptian vultures and eagles.

Once of the royal reserve of the rulers of Alwar, Sariska is now part of Project Tiger. Sariska has many hides located near the water holes which are perfect for viewing and photographing wildlife. Inside the Park are the ruins of a splendid 17th century castle at Kankwari. Also close by are the Neelkanth temples (6th-13th century AD) and the glorious Paandu Pol waterfalls. A must visit is the Sariska Fort which, despite being in a state of ruin, offers a magnificent vie of the sunset.

History of Sariska

Once an ancient Rajput state, formerly known as Mewat, Alwar was nearest to the imperial Delhi. The people of the state did not accept any external interference’s and daringly resisted against foreign invasions. In the 12th and 13th centuries, they formed a group and raided Delhi. But finally Sultan Bulban (1267 A.D - 1287 A.D) suppressed them, bringing the area under the Muslims rule. In 1771 A.D. Maharaja Pratap Singh, a Kuchhwaha Rajput belonging to the clan of Jaipur’s rulers, won back Alwar and founded his own principality.
