Keoladeo National Park, also known as Keoladeo Ghana National Park, is a renowned national park in Rajasthan, India, famous for its avian biodiversity. This park is situated 42km from Bandh Baretha. Hosting over 400 bird species, the park attracts thousands of resident and migratory birds, particularly in winter. Established as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary in 1971 and a national park in 1982, it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. Spanning 29 kmĀ², the park features a human-made wetland that supports diverse wildlife, including 20 fish, 70 reptile and amphibian, and 50 mammalian species. It also protects local settlements from floods and offers pastures for livestock, transforming from former hunting grounds into a thriving mosaic of grasslands, woodlands, swamps, and seasonal wetlands.
