Lohagarh Fort Bharatpur

Lohagarh Fort (Iron fort) is situated at Bharatpur in Rajasthan, India. It was constructed by Bharatpur Jat rulers. Maharaja Suraj Mal used all his power and wealth to a good cause, and built numerous forts and palaces across his kingdom, one of them being the Lohagarh Fort (Iron fort), which was one of the strongest ever built in Indian history. The inaccessible Lohagarh fort could withstand repeated attacks of British forces led by Lord Lake in 1805 when they laid siege for over six weeks. Having lost over 3000 soldiers, the British forces had to retreat and strike a compromise with the Bharatpur ruler. Of the two gates in the fort, one in the north is known as Ashtdhaatu (eight metalled) gate while the one facing the south is called Chowburja (four-pillared) gate.
It is very different from the other forts in Rajasthan state, there is no flamboyance associated to fort but it generates an aura of strength and magnificence. The fort is surrounded with moat which was previously filled with water to ward off the enemy attacks. The sandy ramparts were strengthened by sandy battlements, thus the enemy guns proved of no avail.
Some interesting monuments in the fort are Kishori Mahal, Mahal Khas and Kothi Khas. Moti Mahal and towers like Jawahar Burj and Fateh Burj were erected to commemorate the victory over the Mughals and the British army . The Gateway has paintings of huge elephants.


Keoladeo National Park

The geographical location is ideal as it is on the main North - South avian route of India. Although small in size, 29 sq. km. only, it boasts of housing more than 375 species of beautiful birds. More than 132 of them breed inside the National Park and nearly every year new ones are added to the list. The sanctuary not only attracts birds from India but also from places like Europe, Siberia, China and Tibet.
Before the monsoon hundreds of these exotic birds roost and nest-building activities start on the babool and kadam trees of the park. Water coming through the Ajan Bandh starts filling the various ponds and lakes of the Park.
When assured of enough food, hundreds of large, medium and little cormorants, darters, purple and Grey herons, various species of egret, painted, open-billed, white necked and black necked storks, white ibis, spoonbills, night herons and other birds get busy in courting and mating. The trees are overloaded with nests; one can observe a tree housing upto fifty or sixty nests, belonging to different species of birds looking after their young. Gracious Saras cranes, the tallest flying birds nest in exposed and open areas, both partners share the duty of incubating the eggs. They perform beautiful displays - coming together they raise their neck and make shrill trumpetic calls in unison and at the same time fan their feathers. The newly born chicks are only 10 cm. in size but grow upto one meter in height within a year.
As the monsoons arrive birds from every part of the country start pouring into the park. Migratory water-fowl, including the pride of Keoladeo, Siberian Cranes, form the indispensable part of Park. The water-fowl visit the park in thousands during the month of October. The most noticeable water-fowl coming to the park are barheaded and greyley geese.
