A different sort of nature reserve, the Sariska National Park is seeped in features unique to its geography and to the effects of time, that of its royal history and the modern issues of poaching and the ensuing measures. Located in Rajasthan, it has mostly dry deciduous forests and thorny arid vegetation, unusual for a bustling hub of biodiversity. Also, there are major historical landmarks, palaces and temples, that speak of its significance during the reign of the local Rajput kings and Mughals.
Being home to a great number of big cats, including tigers and leopards, Sariska was a major hunting ground for the royal family in the late 19th and early 20th century. While that recklessness stopped during times more modern, it was replaced by a more sinister, clandestine poaching, for the supposed medicinal properties of the feline species, leaving hundreds of dead tigers in its wake. The national park being deemed a tiger reserve has stemmed that flow significantly, and Sariska has surprisingly and resiently held on to its abundant biodiversity.
