Introducing Bharatpur

Bharatpur is famous for its Unesco–listed Keoladeo Ghana National Park, a wetland and significant bird sanctuary. Apart from the park, Bharatpur has a few historical vestiges, though it would not be worth making the journey for these alone. The town is dusty, noisy and not particularly visitor friendly. Bharatpur hosts the boisterous and colourful Brij Festival just prior to Holi celebrations.

Keoladeo Ghana National Park lies 3km to the south of Bharatpur’s centre.
