Christmas 2013, Rajasthan Road Trip, Day #9 of 12 -- Keoldeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary and Fatehpur Sikri

We decided to visit the Bird Sanctuary once more. Actually to do justice to bird sanctuary one needs around three complete days. But we decided to just live with two half days. Here is a slideshow of birds that I saw on the second day.
2:30 PM Left for Fatehpur Sikri

3:00 PM Reached Fatehpur Sikri. As soon as you approach the area with monuments you will come across a large parking. You are supposed to park your vehicle there and then take a bus to monuments.
One needs to be careful here. There are people pretending to be guides who will offer to help you take you car right up to monuments. The problem is that these are not authorised guides and they can only take you to the Dargah. They are not allowed into the palace because that is ASI monument and only ASI accredited guides are allowed there. Also these people would make sure that you spend too much time in dargah while the palace etc. have more things to see. So my advice is that do not take any guide from the parking below and take the bus. In any case the walk is around 1 Kilometre.
