Place for wild life lovers

Must visit place for wildlife lovers. Tigers is the main attraction for this trip. Call your self lucky if you see one. Situated near to the madhopur village where one can stay. Staying is not an issue because from budget room to lavish suite everything is available.

Sawai Madhopur Overview

Sawai Madhopur was named by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh I of Jaipur after himself during his rule from 1750-1768. It is a city and administrative headquarter in the state of Rajasthan. Built as a well planned city, the area was initially ruled by a Rajput Emperor, Raja Hammir Dev, who belonged to the Chauhan Dynasty. Later the area got destroyed when it was invaded by Allaudin Khiljee.

A prominent city in western India, Sawai Madhopur shares its borders with Dausa District in the north, Tonk District in the east, Bundi District in the south-east and Karauli District in the north-west. Chambal River and Kota District are also adjacent to Sawai Madhopur.

The area is well known for its guavas, which are popularly referred as ‘Madhopur Guavas’ in Rajasthan. Sawai Madhopur in addition to its rich historical past, which is depicted in the magnificent Ranthambore Fortress, is also home to the Ranthambore National Park.

The town of Sawai Madhopur has many attractions like the Mahadeo Chattri, Ranthambore Ganesh Temple, Chouth Mata Temple, Amareshwar Mahadeo Temple and the Rameshwaram Dham. The Ranthambore Fort, with its rich, glorious past and intricate architecture provides a glimpse of the yesteryears of Indian history.

Sameton Ki Haveli and the Toran Dwar are other attractions of the city. Fairs and festivals in this town are well known in the whole of Rajasthan, which can help tourists get a glimpse of the Rajasthani tradition and culture.

The best time to visit Sawai Madhopur is from November to April. Sawai Madhopur is well connected to Jaipur, Delhi and other major cities by road. The nearest airport is at Jaipur, while the town has a rail station of its own which is connected to major rail stations in the country.
