Facilities at Sawai Madhopur

 The twin cities of Sawai Madhopur and Mann Town are small towns for Indian standards. They, however, offer almost all the basic facilities that an average tourist needs.

Communications:

Long distance telephone calls, Fax and Internet services (mostly through broad band wifi services have been introduced) are available in almost all tourism facilities.

There is a large Post Office in Man town where all the basic postal services are available, such as Speed Post, Telegram and Parcel. The same Post Office also has an office of Western Union money transfer.

Mobile phone service (GSM) is provided by all major telephone companies of India.

Medical:

All basic health care facilities are available. Most hospitals and nursing homes do not maintain a very high standard of hygiene. The largest (though not the best) hospital is the Government run hospital near Alanpur (on the way to the Old City). "Prakritik", a local Non-Governmental Organization has a well-equipped and clean hospital, in the town. There are a number of smaller "Nursing Homes" that have good doctors. Drug stores are reasonably well stocked.

Almost all the major hotels of Ranthambhore provide "doctor on call" facilities.
