Sariska Tiger Reserve

August 25, 2017

Sariska Tiger Reserve

Sharp cliffs of hills and narrow valleys of the Aravallis dominate the landscape of Sariska, whose forests are dry and deciduous. Within the Sariska wildlife sanctuary, there are the ruins of medieval temples of Garh-Rajor, belonging to the 10th and 11th centuries.

A 17th-century castle on a sharp hilltop at Kankwari provides a panoramic view of flying Egyptian vultures and eagles. The area was declared a sanctuary in 1955 and became a National Park in 1979.

Major Wildlife Attractions :-

Sariska park is home to numerous carnivores including Leopard, Wild Dog, Jungle Cat, Hyena, Jackal, and Tiger. These feed on an abundance of prey species such as Sambar, Chitel, Nilgai, Chausingha, Wild Boar and Langur. Sariska is also well known for its large population of Rhesus Monkeys, which are found in large numbers around Talvriksh. 

The avian world is also well represented with a rich and varied birdlife. These include Peafowl, Grey Partridge, Bush Quail, Sand Grouse, Tree Pie, Golden-backed Wood Pecker, Crested Serpent Eagle and the Great Indian Horned Owl.

Places of Interest:-

Kanakwari Fort - One of the best illustrations of a jungle fort in India, the Kanakwari Fort lies within the Sariska reserve area within the ranges of 18 kms from the entrance gate. The spot is obviously hard to find as it lies deep inside the tiger infested forest. This was the place where Prince Dara Shikoh, heir to the Mughal throne, was held captive by his brother Aurangzeb. A steep rise of stairs will lead to the fort to bring the faded ancient wall paintings that still reflect the Rajputana eloquences.

Sariska Palace - The Sariska Palace inside the reserve area was once the hunting lodge for Maharaja Jai Singh of Jaipur. This is the most visited place for the number of tourists, even if they are not dwelling for the tiger tours in Sariska. The palace is decked with sprawling lawns, antique furniture and interesting photographs of the Royal Shikar of the 1920s and is now converted into a museum.

Naldeshwar Temple - The Naldeshwar Temple is being located at some distance away from the reserve area at the Alwar-Jaipur highway joining Sariska to Alwar. This temple is easily accessible by foot once reaching the highway. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is surrounded by dense greenery to bring a pristine environment for many overwhelming moments. This 18th-century old temple showcases some different ambience around the deserted land of Rajasthan.

Neelkanth Temple - The temple of Neelkanth, dedicated to Lord Shiva is encircled by the Aravali ranges and is quite close to the Sariska reserve. This ancient temple also looks like a rocky museum which is studded with sculptures, carvings and scriptures similar to the ones excavated at Khajuraho and so also has some historical importance too.

Bharthrihari Temple - Located at 30 kms away from the Sariska reserve, this temple is dedicated to an ancient sage Bhartrihari to attract many Hindu devotees. This temple stands above the samadhi of Yogi Bhartrihari Nath and is known for its excellent Rajasthani style of architecture.

Nearby Areas/Excursions:-

Jaipur - The most demanding and most popular spot in India which is the real trademark of India tourism lying very closely from Alwar at a distance of 132.6 kms could be the preferred choice for many excursions after Sariska. One fair chance to get into the magnanimous Rajasthani architectures in the form of forts, palaces, museums, halls and much more for the most memorable experience.

Delhi - Known for being the capital city of India, Delhi at a distance of 226 kms from the tiger palace, is the location where the tourists can make a relaxing landing from their place (country) and then can proceed towards the political city of India to catch some historical monuments and ancient heritage spots including the legendary marketplace of Chandni Chowk near the Red Fort. This is a fascinating place to explore the cultural mix of India to recognize it as "Mini-India".

Agra - The city of Taj Mahal what we call it, Agra locates at the suitable distance of 212 kms from Sariska (Alwar) where the tourists can make their romantic journey prior to rewarding the safari tour in Sariska. Agra presents one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal which is famed for its dynamic architecture and the great legend behind it to captivate millions of tourists every year. This could be the most refreshing journey after the hectic safari in Sariska Tiger Reserve.

Bharatpur - If the tiger lovers have the same affection for the avians and want to catch the varied counts of birds in India, Bharatpur at the distance of 158.6 kms from the reserve can fit for them. This is well known as the paradise for the ornithologists to read their movements and nature in the area; specifically to find the Siberian Crane, the main attraction of Bharatpur. Quite closer to Agra, this could be the next best excursion for the tourists during their tiger tour in India.
