Bharatpur, famous for its bird sanctuary, lies a 55 km from Agra. The Keoladeo Ghana National Park here has a rich avian variety. Every year, the rare Siberian cranes migrate here to spend the winter in the warmer climate of Bharatpur.

Apart from bird spotting, also visit the splendid Bharatpur Palace, which has a large number of ancient exhibits that date back to the early 15th century. The maharajas of Bharatpur became famous for the bird-lands they carefully developed in the marshes just outside Bharatpur. In old times, the duck shoots hosted here were attended by several maharajas and visiting British dignitaries. These splendid bird-lands have now been converted into a remarkable, if small, national park.
