Each year before the arrival of winter, thousands of birds migrate from the frozen waters of Siberia, Tibet, Mongolia and eastern Europe to India. One of the best destinations for these birds is the marsh of Bharatpur lying between Agra and Jaipur in the north-western part of India.

Large-scale conservation efforts initiated by famous ornithologist Dr. Salim Ali led to the reserve being declared as a National Park in March 1982.
