The 1000 year old fort at Ranthambore in the southeast Rajasthan has enjoyed the luxury of royalty, and faced the wrath of battle. Located in Sawai Madhopur district, a little over 100 kms from the capital of the state, Jaipur, the fort now stands as part of an enchanting landscape and speaks of a fascinating history. The Great Emperor Akbar once attempted to gain control over this fort but little did he know that tigers would rule here in the not so far future. With over 200 species of birds and various marsh water crocodiles, the fort is now part of the protected wildlife haven called the Ranthambore National Park. The park is home to the national animal of India, the tiger and gives a unique opportunity to see the magnificent beast in a natural environment.
Why not make this trip complete by visiting a city rich with history, another with culture and some world heritage sites. We bring you, the Golden Triangle of India with a trip to Ranthambore.
