Khijadia Bird Sanctuary Its a unique wet land area with sea water on one side and fresh water on one side. This area was declared as a Khijadia Bird Sanctury on 6th November 1982. Before independence, a check dam had been built for storing the waters of the Ruparen River just near the sea, so gradually over the years with fresh water of the rain and river on one side and salt water of the sea on the other side, a unique area came up where both varieties of vegetation came up, gradualy, birds and animals also started flocking and roosting here. this is also one of the few sanctuaries in peninsular India where the Crested Grebe breeds.
