Recognised as one of the most important breeding and feeding ground for birds, Keoladeo National Park was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. It was formerly known as the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary. Home to over 370 types of fauna and avifauna such as painted storks, nilgai, basking python, deer etc., it was once noted as the breeding centre for the rare Siberian crane. Well-defined treks weave through the park and offer amazing birdwatching opportunities.
