Wildlife Special: Ranthambore National Park

New Delhi: Ranthambore National Park is amongst the best national parks in India. It is a safe shelter for tigers and many other wildlife species. What makes this leading wildlife reserve stand out in the country are its location, flora and the royal ruins of the majestic fort. 

Ranthambore Fort: The construction of the fort began in 944 AD under the rule of King Sapaldaksha but it was during the time period of Rao Hammir Deo Chauhan that the fort took shape. It is recognized by UNESCO World Heritage Site that places it under the title ‘Hill Forts of Rajasthan’. This majestic fort is the landmark of Ranthambore National Park. Situated about 5kms inside the wildlife reserve, Ranthambore Fort is the marvel of the Chauhan dynasty.

Trinetra Ganesh Temple: Situated inside Ranthambore Fort, Trinetra Ganesh Temple is yet another attraction in Ranthambore National Park. Trinetra (Three-Eyed) Ganesh or Pratham Ganesh Temple is amongst the oldest temples in Rajasthan. It is one of those temples, where one can find the deities of the entire family of Lord Ganesha. 

Surwal Lake: Set amidst quaint settings, Surwal Lake is one of the best places for sightseeing near Ranthambore Park. This lake is the haven for many birds, which are seen here catching fishes especially during winter season.

Jogi Mahal: Jogi Mahal was used as a rest house for the visitors. Due to its scenic location, it has become a popular place in Ranthambore Tiger Reserve; unfortunately accommodation in Jogi Mahal has been restricted now. Near the Mahal is a tall banyan tree, which is considered one of the largest banyan trees in India.
