About Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary
Sariska Wildlife SanctuaryHome of the majestic Tiger, Sariska is one of the protected sanctuaries in India where Project Tiger was a success. Set amidst the scrubby Aravali Hills, the sanctuary sprawls with dry thorny deciduous forests, covered almost ninety per cent by the Dhok tree. Sariska was declared a Sanctuary in 1955 and became a Tiger Reserve in 1979.

Within the Sanctuary, there are also historical ruins of monuments symbolic of its past. The Kankwari Fort, the ancient Shiva Neelkanth Temples that date back to the 6th-13th century A.D. and the Palace built by the Maharajahs of Alwar, now converted into a hotel, are all great sights.

Sariska is open to visitors throughout the year, although certain jungle tracks are closed during the monsoon and the breeding season. The best time to visit the park is late in the winter around January or February. If you don’t mind the heat, April to June is a great time to see animals at the waterholes.
