Bandhavgarh National Park


Bandhavgarh National Park Safari


Set among the Vindhyas, in the state of Madhya Pradesh, Bandhavgarh is a small national park as compared to other national parks across the nation, but with the maximum known density of tiger populace in India. It is situated in the Umaria region of Madhya Pradesh.

The park acquires its name from the one of the most prominent hillock of the area that is said to be given by Hindu Lord Rama to his brother Lakshmana to maintain a watch on Lanka (Ceylon). This is the reason this place is named Bandhavgarh.

Bandhavgarh Wildlife National Park is a park with a prosperous historical past. Prior to becoming a national wildlife park, the jungles around Bandhavgarh had long been maintained as a Shikargah, or amusement preserve, of the Maharajas and their guests.
