Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary


Located in the Alwar district, Sariska was declared a sanctuary in the year 1955. Spread over an area of 800 sq km (core area 500 sq km), the sanctuary was further given the status of a National Park in 1979. The topography of the sanctuary is quite similar to that of Ranthambore National Park. Northern Aravalli range dominates the Sariska landscape, with sharp cliffs and narrow valleys. Scrub-thorn arid forests, dry deciduous forests, rocks and grasses, all contribute to the geographical features of Sariska in Rajasthan, India. The climate of Sariska is both inconsistent as well as unpredictable.

Along with that, there is also a palace inside the Sariska Tiger Reserve built by the former rulers of Alwar.

The park remains open almost throughout the year, but the best time to visit is during the months of October to April.
