About India India Cities India Hotels India Travel Guide

The Sariska Tiger Reserve sprawls across 800 square kilometres of the Aravalis and is perhaps one of India's most exciting wildlife reserves. The Sariska National Park offers a wide range of activities such as motor driving in and around the park in the mornings and evenings, observing the wildlife at the waterholes, or photographing wildlife from the many hideouts provided in the park. There are also many ancient temples scattered throughout the park, as well as the Kankwadi Fort that can be visited.

Sariska Tourist Attractions
Sariska National Park

Sariska National Park is known for its tigers. Other predators of the forest include the panther, jungle cat, jackal, hyena, and fox. Also found are sambhar, chital, wild boar, hare, nilgai, civet, four-horned antelope, gaur (Indian bison) and porcupine. Birds found here include peafowl, grey partridges, quails, tree pies, etc.

Kankwadi Fort

The Kankwadi fort is Sariska's link with Mughal history. Now overgrown with weeds and shrubs, it stands majestically on a hill overlooking the Kankwadi plateau and a small lake surrounded by a few Gujjar (a tribe) villages. Located inside the park are ruins of medieval temples of the Hindu God Shiva (Neel Kanth Temple).
