As far as wildlife is concerned, the Indian peninsula is a continent in itself where the sheer diversity of the wildlife astounds you with more than 350 species of mammals and 1200 avifauna species in the country.
The people want to do only one thing in the cities during the summers – they want to get away from it. They want a cool getaway in India itself where they can have some respite from the scorching heat of the plains.
Rajasthan is an arid desert State with very little greenery. However, the rulers of Rajasthan did their very best to change the landscape and add a bit of greenery to the barren land. They built artificial reservoirs and developed beautiful gardens that would give their cities some colour. These gardens were a means to change the façade of City and add a bit of charm to the whole atmosphere.
There are numerous gardens all over Rajasthan and one of the most famous amongst them is Kanak Vrindavan of Jaipur. This garden is located on the way to the three forts of Jaipur namely the Amber Fort, Nahargarh Fort, and the Jaigarh Fort.
A magnificent temple made of beige stone and intricately carved marble pillar and marble lattices graces the garden. The Kanak Vrindavan is nestled in the foothills of the Nahargarh hills and is one the better green retreats in Rajasthan. At times, a varied variety of migratory birds make their way to the Kanak Vrindavan valley, which includes, amongst others spotted doves, kingfishers, and Neelkanths. The valley garden also has glorious lotus ponds and regional trees like Dhok and Kadamba.
The Kanak Vrindavan is fanned by a cool breeze from the Dharbawati River, making it the perfect spot for picnics etc.
