Location of Bharatpur in Rajasthan: Number 30 on the eastern edge.

Bharatpur District is a district of Rajasthan state in western India. The town of Bharatpur is the district headquarters. Bharatpur district is a part of National Capital Region (NCR)

History[edit]

Main article: Bharatpur State

When Bharatpur was a princely state, it was the only political entity ever to have a Chartreuse colored flag.[1]

Geography[edit]

The district has an area of 5,066 km². It is bounded by Gurgaon districts of Haryana on the north, Mathura and Agra districts of Uttar Pradesh on the east, and the Rajasthan districts of Dholpur on the south, Karauli on the southwest, and Dausa and Alwar on the west.

Three rivers, the Ban Ganga, Rooparel, and Gambhir, cross the district. The Ban Ganga originates in Jaipur District, passes through Dausa and Bharatpur districts to meet the Yamuna River in Uttar Pradesh. The Gambhir River starts from Pachana Dam of Karauli District, and meets the Ban Ganga in Bayana Tehsil. The Rooparel River starts from hills of Alwar District and enters the district in Kaman Tehsil.

Divisions[edit]

Bharatpur District has ten revenue subdivisions and eleven tehsils. They have the same names and borders, except that Weir Subdivision is divided into Weir Tehsil and Bhusawar Tehsil. The other nine tehsils are: Bayana, Bharatpur, Deeg, Kaman, Kumher, Nadbai, Nagar, Pahari, and Roopwas (Rupbas).[2]

Notable personalities[edit]

  • Acharya Rajendrasuri (1826–1906), Jain reformer. Born in Bharatpur.

Points of interest[edit]

Bharatpur District is famous for Keoladeo National Park, a major wintering area for migratory birds. Established as a duck-hunting reserve by the Maharajas of Bharatpur, it was known as the best duck shooting resort in the British Empire. The site was declared a bird sanctuary in 1956 and later upgraded to National Park. UNESCO has listed it as a world heritage site. Keoladeo National Park attracts 364 species of birds, including many from India, but also from Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Siberia, China and Tibet, including the rare Siberian Crane. As the monsoons arrive and the wetlands and marshes start to fill with water, birds start pouring into the park.
