    An apt example of an Oasis is the Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary in Rajasthan. Keoladeo, in the city of Bharatpur has a very rich history dating back a few hundred years. Approximately 250 years ago, the Maharajas built bunds to create Wetlands which in due course of time became a magnet for a plethora of migratory and resident birds. Over the years, kings, viceroys and their guests enjoyed sport hunting of ducks and other birds.

    But after 1982, wildlife laws were brought in and the sanctuary was declared a National Park. It was named Keoladeo Ghana; later in 1985, Keoladeo was declared a UNESCO world Heritage site.

    Measuring just about 30 sq. Km. in size, the park is home to wide variety of avian fauna. Almost 400 species of birds call this heaven their home. With the arrival of winters, the migratory birds arrive on their southern sojurn. The mist rising up from the water and the golden light with a flock of ducks amidst is any photographer's dream.

    Not to forget, there are mammals too in the park and on any given day, you are bound to chance up on Nilgai, Jungle cats, Jackals and deer. Occasionally, you could see an Indian Rock Python basking in the sun.

    The winters are coming! This is your chance to experience the bounties of this Heritage site. Don't waste time and shoot an email to ck@travelunbounded.com
