Nahargarh Rescue Centre-Nahargarh-Jaipur

These Photographs are taken from Nahargarh Rescue Center.It is located outside the city area of Jaipur. There are more than 20 lion's and Tiger's in the rescue station and all of them are from the Circus or either got free from the people mistreating them. Govt of Rajasthan has taken the initiative and given them the comfortable environment which they actually deserve. Most of the beasts are very old in age but the workers are really taking good care of them and i really feel that their hard work will not make the beasts a history.

This place is not open for public.









They really look so innocent.

It's not open to public? They may look innocent but you still got to be careful! : )

Nice initiative. Hopefully there are many more such sanctuaries in India to look after such animals as they are too old to be left alone in the jungle and hunt for themselves. They never should be used for circus entertainment.

It is good to see you posting again.

It is sad to see these magnificent creatures caged, but I am sure their new home provides a much better life than the circus or an abusive captor. It is good that your government cares for them.

What a tragedy that these regal beasts are mistreated. I am so glad that they have a sanctuary where they can heal.

It is good to hear that the Rajasthan Government had taken the initiative. From the pictures, the cages seem to be rather small, but it is good to hear that the animals are being treated well.

I always enjoy dropping by the Unsen Rajasthan, even though I can't even pronounce it. LOL The last few entries are great.

I like to read about these sanctuaries. I visited one in Florida a couple of years ago. It is near Tampa – it is called The Big Car Rescue. They are in large open areas and it’s nice to see them happy there.

It's always very sad to hear about mistreated animals. Sometime I can't understand people. The initiative is very good. Will be released those animals or are they too old for that?

HOLA AMIGO.
¿Todo bien?
Preciosidad de animales. Lástima hayan sido separados de su hábitat natural.
Por muy bien cuidados que estén- y de eso NO me cabe la menor duda- como en su medio natural, JAMÁS se encontraran.
Escusa por mi critica AMIGO, pero es lo que siento.
SALU2,


HELLO FRIEND.
All right?
Preciousness of animals. Too bad they have been separated from their natural habitat.
No matter how well maintained they are-and so I do not doubt, as in the wild, never meet.
Excuse for my critical friend, but what I feel.
SALU2,

I read a comment where a person was concerned about the small size of cages. Actually every animal has been given around 20x100feet of green area with a water hole behind the cage. They are generally let out in the day time where they relax under the sun.
This project should be over in another 5-10 years as the animals are already too old and the captive breeding is not allowed here.
