The deep valleys and thick forest cover of the hills are a haven for many species of birds such as grey partridge and white throated kingfisher and animals, most notably, the Bengal tiger and golden jackal It is this splendor and exquisite architecture, along with the calm lakes. Royal hunting chalets, dense jungles of Sariska Tiger Reserve and a socio-cultural environment unlike any other that makes Alwar a traveler’s delight.
Alwar is one of the oldest cities in Rajasthan. Paradoxically, the city is also the most recent of the Rajput kingdoms. Its traditions can be traced back to the realms of Viratnagar that flourished here around 1500 BC. Also known as Matsya Desh, this is where the Pandeva, the mighty heroes of the Mahabharata, spent the last years of their 13-year exile.
