Bhindawas Bird Sanctuary

Direction

It was established as a Bird Sanctuary by the Government of India in 3rd June, 2009. Constructed to store the excess waters of the Jawaharlal Nehru canal at the time of power failure of Lift Canal System, the Sanctuary is spread over an area of 1074 acres. There are many reasons to visit Bhindawas, the main one being is, one can see acres of yellow mustard fields along the road to this wetland, also one can spot innumerable species of water birds flock near a canal long before reach the sanctuary. And, finally, a trip here does not involve too much walking. A 12 km vehicle track goes all around the lake.

Due to the water problem at Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary in Rajasthan, over the past years, the sanctuary has become more ecologically important and made Bhindawas Bird sanctuary’s lake as their alternate site to a number of migratory water birds. More than 30,000 variety of migratory birds belonging to over 250 species and resident birds visit Bhindawas Bird Sanctuary through the year. The number dips during the summer and picks up during the winter. Situated along the Jhajjar-Dadri approach road, there are small islands within the lake.
