The different species of birds
Muslim tourists may not find prayer rooms or a masjid inside the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary; however they may be able to offer their prayers at the guest house located within the bird sanctuary premises. Those unable to offer their prayers at the sanctuary will be able to find prayer facilities in the city of Gurgaon, since it is known to house a couple of mosques frequented by its locals and tourists alike. Chauma Masjid and Anjuman Masjid are two prominent mosques in the city.
Tourists visiting the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary have the option of getting the picnic package or just the entry ticket to see the bird sanctuary. Those getting the picnic package could opt for the vegetarian meal if they are concerned about the Halal status of the non-vegetarian meal. Muslim tourists will however be able to locate a number of Halal restaurants in the city of Gurgaon.
