Sariska National Park


Sariska Tiger Reserve is made of dry deciduous vegetation. Situated in the Alwar district of Rajasthan, Sariska is prime tiger country. It was earlier the hunting reserve of Alwar’s royalty and subsequently it has played an important role in the conservation of tigers. The vegetation here is extremely dramatic, changing as it does with the change in seasons.


Sariska is one of the most visited national parks in India as its attractions include not just tigers and an active animal and bird life but also the ruins of medieval temples of Garh-Rajor from the 10th and 11th centuries and a fort from the 17th century. The fort is on top of a hill at Kankwari and is excellent for viewing the eagles and flying vultures. The palace here was built by the Maharaja of Alwar and is now a heritage hotel. The park became a tiger reserve in 1978 when it came under India's Project Tiger.

Flora & Fauna

Spread over a vast 800 sq km, Sariska covers grasslands, dry deciduous forests, sheer cliffs and rocky landscape. Animals like leopard, sambhar, chital, nilgai, four-horned antelope, wild boar, rhesus macaque, langur, hyena and jungle cats abound in Sariska. Peafowl, harbor quail, sand grouse, golden- backed woodpecker and crested serpent eagle form the bird life in Sariska.

Sariska Tiger Reserve remains open from 1st October to 30th June for all seven days of the week.
