« on: June 14, 2012, 03:26:13 AM »

Bharatpur, considered as the Eastern Gateway to Rajasthan, was founded by Maharaja Suraj Mal in 1733 AD. It is a fortified city and played an important role in molding the History of Rajasthan. The city and the Fort is said to be founded by a Jat named Rustam. Maharaja Suraj Mal took over the fortified city from Khemkaran, son of Rustam and established his empire.
The city of Bharatpur is 184 km from Delhi and borders with Dausa District in south-west and Alwar District in the North-West. The city is famous for its wildlife sanctuary. Known as the Keoladeo National Park, which is a delight for the bird lovers. During the period of British rule in India, it was known as the Best Duck shooting resort, but in the year 1956, it was declared a bird reserve and later in 1972, it was declared a National Park. The park is named “Keoladeo” after the name of the temple of Lord Shiva in the park. This park has its place among the UNESCO World heritage list since 1985. The park is spread over an area of 29 square km and lies 370 m above the sea level. Much of the area inside the park is bushy, but it also contains semi arid woodland and scrub.

The crane population in this sanctuary has been continuously decreasing. It was 200 in 1964-65, but decreased to 02 in 2000-2001.
