It is believed that Maharajah Udaibhan Singh of Dholpur had a great liking for the wild animals of Van Vihar. He used to hand feed not only the deer and antelopes in the reserve but also animals like foxes, jackals and birds. There is an old forest rest house in Van Vihar. It was initially built by the rulers of Dholpur. Ramsagar part of the sanctuary has Ramsagar Lake. The lake is very picturesque and supports rich aquatic life including fresh water crocodiles and a number of species of fishes and snakes

» Talab Shahi : Built in 1617, Talab Shahi is a picturesque lake that lies 40 km from Dholpur. A palace was also built along lake. The lake attracts a large number of winter migratory fowls like pintail, Shoverller, Red crested Pochard, wigeon and Gadwall.

» Muchchhakund : Muchchhkkund is an ancient sacred place about 8 kms from the Dholpur. The Palace is named after Raja Muchchhkund and it offers a picturesque view.
