Tal Chhapar Sanctuary
Tal Chapar (or Tal Chhapar) Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the best kept secrets among wildlife photographers in India. Located in Churu district in Rajasthan, this grassland is about 350 km from Delhi and 200 km from Jaipur by road . Being on the fringes of the mighty Thar Desert means that the park gets very little rainfall every year. Travelling by road, one comes across sand dunes all along the way. On entering the park’s gate, however, the scenery completely changes into a tree-line avenue, opening into a beautiful flat grassland. In fact, the word Tal means flat land.
Tal Chhapar is an extremely peaceful place and has a great viewing experience for birds and is good place for photographing blackbucks and birds of prey. This grassland, home to an array of wildlife ranging from large antelopes to small burrowing rodents, was once the hunting ground of the Maharaja of Bikaner. The palace, which was used back then for hunting, currently serves as a school.
