  • Not an oft visited place. But should not be missed by those who practically wish to see the fossils which all of us read about in our middle school.  more »

  • Amazing place having fossils of 180 million years ago. Gymnosperms are petrified on display. You can even touch them. Freely roaming and friendly emu. Can see Nilgai and a chinkara in their natural habitat. Can have a good knowledge of organic evolution along with fossils of various times. However fossils are sold openly at the fort and lake. This place is worth going.
  • Awesome place. A must visit. You can see how coal is formed in nature with wood fossil
  • The park is open to visitors throughout the week from 9 am to 6 pm. [9] A nominal entrance fee is charged. [1] There is a small museum near the entrance which showcases photographs of fossils along with brief descriptions. [9] In 2017, the government of Rajasthan earmarked Rs 10.9 crore to turn the park into an international geographical heritage site, with Rs 5 crore proposed for modernising the park. Apart from tourism, there is also a focus on attracting researchers.
  • This place is of great importance for geography students. And the place is beautiful for tourists as well. Nice landscape/scenery.
  • Personally for me it was a great experience as a geography student. But if you are visiting as a tourist, you can safely skip this place. What I loved most here were not the fossils, but the Emu birds that rome freely inside the park. Just try not to scare them away, they will run away if uncomfortable.
