- The Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, once just a forgotten marsh land, was developed by the government into a aviary haven for both local as well as migratory birds. Today with over 250 species of birds spotted within the park, the sanctuary has been elevated to be known as the National Park of Haryana. The park is best visited during the winter months when more than 100 migratory bird species such as Siberian Cranes, Rosy Pelican, Long billed Pipit and Greater Flamingo make this retreat their feeding ground as they travel. But the park doesn't disappoint during the rest of the year either, as the resident species of Paddyfield Pipit, Purple Sunbird, White Ibis, Laughing Dove among others make thetrip more than wonderful. In an attempt to further attract tourists to the sanctuary, the tourism board of Haryana have established a lodge within the sanctuary that rents out rooms to the public. The sanctuary is also home to an incrediblenumber of tree species such as Acacia and Neem and while on trail one can occasionally spot antelopes such as the Neelgai or Blue Bull as well as the Black Buck.
