Safari Rides: A ride is conducted at 6:30 a.m. and 14:30 p.m. Approximately three hours are spent on each ride. You can choose between a 20-seater open-top canter or a 6-seater open-top gypsy for the safari. There is a cost of around Rs700-800 per person for each ride. In the central park area, there are several zones, and safari vehicles travel through one of them. It is rare to see a tiger spotting on a tour, so many visitors take multiple excursions. As you travel from Sawai Madhopur to the national park, you can stay at many resorts.
Ranthambhore Fort: There is a majestic fort in the parking area dating back to the 10th century. Standing 700 feet high, it overlooks the surrounding plain. In the fort, there is a marble temple dedicated to Ganesh, Shiva, and Ramlalaji made out of red Karauli stone. Digamber Jain temples are dedicated to Lord Sumatinath (5th Jain Tirthankar) and Lord Sambhavanath. Construction of the temples took place in the 12th and 13th centuries.
