The historical land of Rajasthan is a home to numerous sites, each one of which has a different history to share with varying significance. Among all these places, Bharatpur, the 'gateway to eastern Rajasthan' acquires its own importance in the tourist map of India.

A Date With The Past
A major tourist destination in the Indian map today, Bharatpur has gone through several stages since the 5th century BCE. Named after Bharat, the younger brother of the Hindu deity Rama, Bharatpur was earlier a part of the Matsya kingdom, and saw several rulers ruling over it till the 18th century CE. In the year 1733, the small area of Bharatpur was formally founded by the Maharaja Suraj Mahl, who captured the fort of Bharatpur from Khemkaran, the rival chief, whom he killed and laid the foundation of Bharatpur City. It was Maharaja Suraj Mahl who pampered the city by developing it and constructing numerous palaces, gardens and temples in and around it, and the city kept on it dignity under the British rule as well. However, after the Indian independence in 1947, the government of India also protected it as the home to the Bharatpur sanctuary.

Besides these birds, the sanctuary is also inhabited by Sambar, Chital, Nilgai and Boar.

Other Attractions
Lohagarh : Also known as the Iron fort, Lohagarh is one of the major historical attractions of Bharatpur. The fort, which was built by Maharaja Suraj Mahl in the 18th century CE, comprises small palaces inside, which though in ruins, symbolises the magnificent work of art carried on by the Indian architects. Besides the Ashtadhatu gate serving as the entrance of the fort, the fort has two standing towers, Jawahar Burj and Fateh Burj, which commemorates the strength of the fort and bravery of the Rajputs shown during frequent attacks by the Mughals and the British.

However, the most treasured artifacts in the museum are the 7th century carving of the Hindu deity Shiva and His wife, Goddess Parvati, and a 10th century fine carving of the God Shiva in the form of 'Nataraja' - a cosmic dancer.
