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.
The modern town lies about 180km from Jaipur and was originally founded by Amer rulers (the Kachhawahas) who had a long standing association with Sawai Madhopur for many centuries.
As well as the National park there are a few other places worth taking time out for such as the Ranthambhor Fort 14km from Sawai Madhour which was gifted to the Amer rulers by the Mughals, along with vast tracts of surrounding forest-land. There are various places of historical interest inside the fort such as the Ganesha temple and other buildings worth seeing.
Sawai Madhopur region 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 all of which have been a witness of the rise and fall of many rulers and battle scenes in the area over the centuries. One of these, once a hunting lodge of the Maharaja of Jaipur, has been converted into a hotel.
If you are looking for a holiday that involves seeing the wildlife of India at close range, a visit to Sawai Madhopur makes good sense.
