The Ranthambhor National Park certainly is one of the most picturesque game reserves in the world - the entire forest being dominated by the silent, ruined battlements of the Ranthambhor Fort, which is inside the sanctuary.

Another interesting feature of the park is a huge banyan tree - supposedly one of the world's largest - near the graceful Jogi Mahal water palace. Incidentally, Jogi Mahal still does not have electricity.

Covered under Project Tiger (one of Asia's most important conservation efforts), Ranthambhor is the favourite haunt of wildlife buffs and professional wildlife photographers from around the world. Apart from tigers, other animals include panthers, caracal, hyena, jackal, jungle cat, marsh crocodiles, wild boar, bears and various species of deer. The Park has a rich birdlife as well including The Great Indian horned owl.

A very interesting thing about the Ranthambhor Fort. Atop the rocky cliff, there is a post office and a temple of the Hindu god, Ganesha. Invitation card of every Hindu wedding is first sent to this temple and the post office is there because of the overload.
