Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary

Location: In the Aravalli range, which cuts across Rajasthan, a few pockets of forest still survive; one such area is the Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary & Tiger Reserve, once the shikargah (hunting ground) of the princely state of Alwar. Under the guidance of Maharaja Jai Singh, many waterholes and watchtowers were constructed within the jungles, which have been a boon for the wildlife. Sariska became a Sanctuary in 1958 and was brought under Project Tiger in 1979.
