Ranthambore Wildlife

In the morning, you will again leave for the Jungle Safari. You will carry your Breakfast and Lunch with you. Enjoy full day game viewing inside the Jungle.

Ranthambore forest is a tropical dry deciduous forest type. It is further categorized as Dhok climax forest because of the predominance of Dhok (Anogeissus pendulla) found nearly everywhere. Dhok is an extremely hardy tree. It can withstand prolonged droughts. The leaves of this tree are good fodder and they are browsed by herbivores, and form a significant part of their diet. Even the dry, fallen leaves, eaten by them, are rich source of nutrition.

Tiger, at the apex of the food chain, preside over the kingdom in a subtle way. Solitary by nature, it operates in stealth. Therefore tiger sightings, frequent as they are, are always a matter of chance. However, even evidences of tiger`s activities are very exciting.

Ranthambore is a home to other cats like Leopard (Panthera pardus), Caracal (Felis caracal), Leopard Cat (Felis bengalensis), Fishing Cat (Felis viverrina) and the Jungle Cat (Felis chaus) too. Apart from the big cats, you will come across Sloth Bear, Striped Hyena, Wolf, Wild dog (or Dhole), Jackal, Indian Fox, Palm Civet, Small Indian Civet, Common Indian Mongoose, Small Indian Mongoose, Ratel (or Honey Badger), Marsh Crocodile and the Indian Python in Ranthambore.

It was designed and planned by Persian planner Ustad Isa.

Thereafter, you will be driven to Gwalior. The Entire city is a visual and aesthetic feast, for the builders of Gwalior were great Architects. While taking a walk through the streets of the city, you will come across Old Havelis which boast of refined carved doorways and windows; at almost every street crossing, you will find statues of the Scindia Family. Museums and art galleries are the treasure houses and the beautifully maintained palaces give the city its inimitable regal flavor. Sightseeing in Gwalior is nothing short of taking up a magical trip into the centuries gone by.

A tour in this city is like having a date with history. The Gwalior fort, known for its son-et-lumiere for many decades now, has slumbered in silence, broken now and then by the patter of curious feet and awed tones.

Come Sundown, the deserted fort is once again left with only memories for company.

But now comes alive every night. Well remembered incidents and well loved voices once more echo through its lonely corridors and its dark and sad faade now glows with the colors of life. Red Gold, blue green lights illuminate every nook and cranny of the superbly tiled Man Mandir. The Gwalior Son-et-Lumiere has begun.

Almost intriguing as the sheet beauty and the size of the temples is the question of why and how they were built here as Khajuraho is isolated, 1000 years ago as it is even today.

One thousand years ago, under the generous and artistic patronage of the Chandela Rajput kings of Central India, 85 temples, magnificent in form and richly carved, came up on one site, near the village of Khajuraho. It was quite an achievement to complete all the temples in such a short span of 100 years, ranging from 950 AD to 1050 AD. Today, of the original 85, only 22 temples have been able to stand the test of time. These remain as a collective paean to life, to joy and to creativity; to the ultimate fusion of man with his creator.

Right in the heart of this city, the noted Kashi Vishwanath Temple is located. The temple enshrines the Jyotirlinga of Shiva, Vishweshwara or Vishwanatha. Here gravitate the teeming millions of India to seek benediction and spiritual peace by the darshan of this Jyotirlinga which confers liberation from the bondages of Maya and the inexorable entanglements of the world. A simple glimpse of the Jyotirlinga is a soul-cleansing experience that transforms life and puts it on the path of knowledge and bhakti. Vishweshwara Jyotirlinga has a very special and unique significance in the spiritual history of India.

Tradition has it that the merits earned by the darshan of other Jyotirlinga scattered in various parts of India are equal to a single visit paid by a devotee to Kashi Vishwanath Temple. Deeply and intimately implanted in the Hindu mind, the Kashi Vishwanath Temple has been a living embodinent of our timeless cultural traditions and highest spiritual values. The Temple has been visited by all great saints- Adi Shankaracharya, Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Swami Vivekananda, Goswami Tulsidas, Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati, Gurunanak and several other spiritual personalities. The Kashi Vishwanath Temple attracts visitors not only from India but abroad as well and thereby symbolizes man`s desire to live in peace and harmony with one another. Vishwanath being a supreme repository of this spiritual truth thus strengthens the bonds of universal brotherhood and fellow feeling at the national as well as global levels. On January 28, 1983 the Temple was taken over by the Govt. of Uttar Pradesh and its management ever since stands entrusted to a Trust with Dr. Vibhuti Narayan Singh.

Former Kashi Naresh, as president and an Executive Committee with Divisional Commissioner as Chairman. The Temple in the present shape was erected in 1780 by Late Maharani Ahilya Bai Holkar of Indore. In the year 1785 a Naubatkhan was constructed in front of the Temple by the then collector Mohd Ibrahim Khan on the directions given by Governor General Warren Hastings. In 1839, two domes of the Temple were covered by gold donated by Punjab Kesari Maharaja Ranjeet Singh. The third dome remained uncovered. The Ministry of cultures & Religious affairs of U.P.
