Indian Tiger, Hotel Laxmi Vilas Palace, Bharatpur Bharatpur Sanctuary:
The sanctuary was initially developed by Maharaja Suraj Mal, because he had some great ideas - not of conservation, but of the possibility of a constant supply of waterfowl for the royal dining table. At that time, it used to be a rough depression of land, seasonally enlivened by ephemeral ponds of water following the life giving monsoons. These ponds attracted some wandering migratory ducks and geese in the winter months, and so Suraj Mal decided to turn it into a permanent reservoir, the Arjun Bund. And soon, Bharatpur became one of India's most productive hunting reserves. So much so that the British officials used to vie for invitations!
