Keoladeo National Park

Situated at the confluence of the rivers Gambhir and Banganga in the Bharatpur district of Rajasthan, Keoladeo National Park is a World Heritage site and one of the most popular bird-watching sites of Asia. The Park-colloquially known as Ghana is an absolutely fascinating tapestry of wetlands, woodlands, woodland swamps and dry grass lands, making it a natural habitation of rich biological diversity. Originally a natural depression (believed to be part of a riverbed- probably the river Yamuna), the region that is now known as Keoladeo National Park was prone to seasonal flooding. This caused it over a period of time,to develop into a lush, thriving system of fresh-water marshes that attracted a large and diverse population of migratory birds. The unchallenged highlight of the Park is that it is the only known wintering region for the highly endangered central population of Siberian Cranes. By virtue of the sheer diversity and richness of its natural geographical features, this quaint and diminutive National Park- all home and sanctuary to an astounding variety of life forms, including 366 avian species, 379 species of flora, 

Birds 

50 species of fish, and a host of snakes, lizards, turtles, amphibians and invertebrates. Keoladeo National Park is a veritable paradise for the serious bird-watcher, offering outstanding opportunities to site an amazing variety of rare and common avian species in their natural habitats. The Parkís proximity to Delhi and popular tourist destinations such as Agra, Mathura and Jaipur makes it an irresistible stop over for the general tourist as well. Today, the Park attracts more than a million visitors each year, including some 45,000 from abroad. Keoladeo National Park gets its name from Lord Shiva, whose temple stands stoic and serene  at the heart of the Park. Shiva, is the form of Pashupati- is the protector and lord of the animal kingdom. It is almost as though a higher spirit emanates his protection and blessings over the wondrous oasis of beauty and nature that is the Keoladeo National Park. Along with the sincere conservation efforts that are on in the region-and, indeed, the world- this haven of nature will continue to thrive and be cherished by visitors from across the globe.   For the avid bird-watcher, Keoladeo National Park needs no introduction.
