The Ranthambhor fort (14km) was gifted to them by the Mughals, along with vast tracts of surrounding forest-land. The region around Sawai Madhopur is thick with remnants of its past history. Walls, wells, mosques and hunting lodges adorn the lush rolling hills of the Vindhyas and the Aravalis.
Lying on the main Delhi/Mumbai railway line, Sawai Madhopur is the gateway to the world renowned Ranthambhor National Park and is one of the main reasons people visit this charming spot as it is one of the few parks where tigers can be seen readily.

It is spread over a highly undulating topography varying from gentle to steep slopes; from flat topped hills of the Vindhyas to the conical hillocks and sharp ridges of the Aravalis, from wide and flat valleys to narrow rocky gorges. An important geological feature the ‘Great Boundary Fault’ where the Vindhya plateaus meet the Aravali hill ranges, meanders through the Reserve which is bound by the Chambal River in the south and Banas River in the north. Don’t miss a visit to this wonderful park where tigers rule and nature is at it’s best.
