Bharatpur Travel Guide
 
The 55-km long journey by road from Agra drives you to the town of Bharatpur. Bharatpur city is named after Bharat, the brother of Lord Rama. This city is also called the Eastern Gateway Of Rajasthan. The foundation of this city was laid by Maharaja Suraj Mal, an adopted son of Badan Singh in 1733 AD. Bharatpur is popular for its bird sanctuary near the Keoladeo Ghana National Park, which is the finest in Asia with a rich avian variety. Every year, the rare Siberian cranes come to spend the winter in the warmer climate of Bharatpur. Of the remnants of the royal past remain the marvellous Bharatpur Palace housing a rich repository of a large number of ancient exhibits that date back to the early 15th century.

Jawahar Burj and Fateh Burj : Jawahar Bhurj and Fateh Bhurj are the two victory towers built by Maharaja Suraj Mal to commemorate his victories over the Mughals and British respectively. The coronation ceremony of the Jat rulers of Bharatpur was also held at the Jawahar Burj.
