Bharatpur is today fast emerging as a popular tourist
destination in India. The city holds pride in being
home to the world famous Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary where
you can spot some of the most beautiful and rare species
of all kinds of birds in the world. Bharatpur is also
fast treading on the path of development and boasts
of providing the most modern facilities to its visitors.
The city is dotted with a large number of hotels to
suit all budgets and tastes of the large number of tourists
to the national park every year.
Owing to its proximity to eastern Uttar Pradesh, Bharatpur
is largely influenced by 'Brij' culture. Glimpses of
this can be found in the city's art, architecture and
local culture. The city of Bharatpur is famous the world
over for its exquisite art of Brij paintings that beautifully
portray images of Lord Krishna and the different stages
of his life. The minute precision with which the local
artisans of Bharatpur produce these paintings is indeed
remarkable. The 'Krishna Leela' paintings, as they are
popularly called, are in great demand not only across
the country but abroad too. Besides, influences of Brij
culture can also be seen in nearly all the temples,
forts and palaces of Bharatpur. The pillars and walls
of these historic monuments are adorned with Brij paintings,
traces of which can still be seen even today.
The culture of Bharatpur shows signs of both Brij and
Rajasthani culture. Local women clad in colorful swirling
ghagras and odhnis with heavy metal anklets adorning
their arms and feet can be seen rubbing shoulders with
girls attired in the most modern outfits in Bharatpur.
The city offers all the exotic traditional delicacies
of Rajasthan like 'Dal Baati Churma', 'Gatte ki Sabzi',
'Papad ki Sabzi', 'Khatta', 'Missi Roti' and 'Bajre
ki Roti'. There is ample scope for shopping too in Bharatpur.
Visitors to the city can shop for exclusive handicrafts
of Rajasthan that are famous all over the world. The
must buys are colorful embroidered 'juttis' (shoes made
of camel leather) and beautiful 'lac' or lacquer bangles.
There is an incredible variety in clothes too. 'Leheriya',
tie-and-dye 'Bandhani' and 'Sanganeri' block prints
are the most popular. Women simply can't resist the
stunning 'Kota Doria' saris that are hand woven and
look simply splendid.
