Info on bird sanctuary is available elsewhere; but I would like to draw everyone's attention to the Interpretation Centre. It's an amazing place run by amazing people like Sejalben and others. It's among the best in India. A model. A must-go. Has a rest room, clean water, free camps in winter for minimum 50 school children or more. Amazing place... More

Definitely one should not miss going to this place if you are a bird lover. Winter is the time to go and one should go early morning with good camera and you will have a lifetime experience.

However the authorities are developing the place more of a picnic resort rather than to give a birdwatching eperience . Iwish they desist to bring in concrete structure within the sancturay... More

You won't find a public transport for this place easily, hence it's better to arrange your own vehicle. Vehicles are allowed inside the bird sanctuary. Reach the place at 6:30 am and you will easily find a... More
