DPC Photo Bus trip to Leopards of Jhalana , Jaipur 

 

Jhalana Forest Area is a small island of forest which is surrounded from all sides by the heritage and cultrural city of Jaipur. This small patch of forest shelters a very healthy and sustainable population of India’s most elusive big cat – The Indian Leopard (Pathera Pardus). Earlier ignored as just a forest patch, Jhalana now has secured its place among one of the top destinations to sight and photograph majestic leopards in its natural habitat. Now its a protected forest area well managed by forest department where safaris are run on daily basis in open gypsies to boost ecotourism, wildlife awareness and leopard conservation.

 

Jhalana shelters more than 35 leopards and has probably the highest density of leopard populations across India. This makes it a place where Leopard sighting chances are always 100% and hence it is rapidly getting popular across wildlife photographers across world. Along with leopards it is also a habitat for Nilgai, Spotted deers, Indian hares, Porcupines, Foxes and Hyenas. Though its a dry deciduous forest, Jhalana is a brilliant spot for bird photography as well. It hosts more than 150 birds across the year with popular birds like Red necked falcons, Indian pitta, Indian eagle owls, Francolins, Buzzards, Peregrine falcons etc

 

What makes Jhalana further unique is the co-existence of those leopards with the active human life all around. Those leopards have adapted themselves brilliantly to this all new ecosystem and its surprising to see Leopards and Humans living in such a harmony without any conflict yet !

 

NOTE :

1. Leopard sighting is matter of luck, so always enjoy the forest with other mammals and birds.

One of the most-visited tourist spots of Delhi and a beautiful historical location to photograph - the Old Fort was constructed by the Pandavas as Indraprastha and later renovated and named Shergarh by the first Afghan emperor Sheh Shah Suri in 1541. It is not only the oldest fort among all forts in Delhi, but the oldest known structure of any type in Delhi. 

 

A fascinating and beautiful fort, the Purana Qila's architecture is a fine blend of the Hindu elements together with the Muslim style of arches and domes. The construction of the Old Fort in Delhi is said to have been started by Humayun, the Afghan ruler. But Sher Shah, after defeating Humayun, is said to have completed the structure. Thus the fort displays a sheer blend of Mughal, Hindu and Afghan architecture, creating an impressive sight. 
 
Excavations reveal painted grey ware pottery which dates back to 1000 B.C. The fact that until 1913 there was a village within the fort called Indrapatha gives credence to the belief that Purana Qila was built on the ruins of Pandava's "Indraprastha".
