It is around 12km from Jamnagar. Visited in the early morning and observed the sunrise. Spotted many birds quite easily - one can take the car along the identified paths and observe the birds at leisure. We spotted almost 40 different birds, including Great White Pelican, Lesser & Greater Flamingo, various ducks, Green Bee-eater, Painted Stork, Grey Heron, Common Crane,... More

This sanctuary is very good for bird lovers as here more than 250 species of different types you can find. Its a home for rare birds like pelican, darter or many more. There is no public transportation available to reach here but you can hire auto/car or take your own car. Enjoy bird watching.

1 hour from rajkot and 30 mins from jamanagr it is a best place to watch birds .. you can drive your car all along the park. Keep food and water as inside the park you have nothing to buy. And yes please do not litter , keep garbage bag. Best time to visit is after monsoon.

Visited in last February. Nothing is there. May be because of lack of rain. Visited with friends. Reached at 9 am. Enrty fee 40rs per person by walking. Around 500 for a car. That's too much. Waste of time and money. Need many improvements.

We had planned to visit it based on its reputation despite latest recommendations by a local expert/guide not to visit due to less rains. But still it turned out to be fabulous birding spot. We were left thinking what it could have been if rains were good. A must do trip for birders.
