Memoirs of Bharatpur
It is perhaps the only case where the habitat has been created by a maharaja. Bharatpur, like Alwar, was once a part of the Matsya Desh of old. History binds itself inextricably linked with legends; for it was here that the Pandava brothers are supposed to have spent their 13 th year of exile some 3500 years back . And all of it is not hogwash, for there're some fine archaeological remains of this earliest evolution conserved in the Bharatpur Museum .

The area was declared a national park on 10 March 1982, and accepted as a World Heritage Site in December 1985. This sanctuary was started in the 17th century, with the Jats of the villages of Sinsini and Thoon rising against the Mughal power. The leaders then were the father-son duo, Bhajjasingh and Rajaram. When this was created it was developed it was alienated in to several parts. It has various beautiful attractions like small dams, dykes, wash gates. These were created to control water level in diverse sections. With the help of these types of sanctuaries hunting can be preserved because the birds are safe here, and one of the best duck - shooting wetlands in the world. Hunting was banned by mid of 60s.
 
Ancient dwellings of Bharatpur

»Deeg palace : Situated just 32-kms away from Bharatpur is the Deeg Palace. A strong fortress, Deeg Palace was the summer resort of the rulers of Bharatpur.

»Bharatpur government museum : Government Museum of Bharatpur, which provides a glimpse of the past royal splendour of Bharatpur.

»Perfect sojourn: Bharatpur wildlife sanctuary
Bharatpur Wildlife Sanctuary is open throughout the year, still the ideal visiting months are from August-November for resident breeding birds and October- February for migrant birds. The area formed a slight depression, which, during the monsoon season, collected rain water and attracted a few migratory ducks and wildfowl. The then Maharaja of Bharatpur recognized the area's potential and developed it into a beautiful sanctuary. An early morning boat trip or a late evening one is quite a rewarding experience to check out the hidden surprises of Bharatpur.
