Get around[edit]


  • Arabic & Persian Research Inst. This institute houses a superb collection of Arabic & Persian manuscripts, some of them lavishly ornamented with gold, rubies, emeralds and pearls.
  • Sunheri Kothi (Mansion of Gold). The golden mansion is the focal point of Tonk. A fairly ordinary monument from outside, the interior is richly ornamented with stained glass, mirrors, stucco and gilt. Other interesting buildings are those built to accommodate the British officers.
  • 1 Ranthambore National Park. The Ranthambore National Park was the hunting ground of Maharaja of Jaipur. In 1955, it was declared a game sanctuary; in 1980, it became a national park. But with the commissioning of Project Tiger in 1972, it was included in the project.
