Location : 50 km from Agra on Agra-Jaipur
Declared a national park in 1983, this
29 sq km park is one of the worlds
greatest heronries. Its shallow, fresh
water marsh attracts thousands of
migratory birds. Over 10,000 nests of
egrets, darters, cormorants, grey herons
and storks hatch nearly 20 to 30
thousand chicks yearly. There is an
infinite variety of migratory birds.
Mammals like the sambhar, blackbuck,
chital, nilgai, fishing cat, otter and
mongoose also roam freely here.
Best time to visit: August to February
