Fort of Tigers – Bandhavgarh

Bandhavgarh National Park is located in Madhya Pradesh. “Bandhav” means Brother and Garh means a fort in Sanskrit language. Laxman, the brother of Lord Rama was told by his brother to keep an eye on Ceylon, the kingdom of Ravana from here.

It is a fort of the tigers amongst the Vindhyachal mountain ranges. This national park is very well known for the highest concentration of tigers per unit area of the forest. The Bandhavgarh hills are nearly 811 kilometers above the sea level. The swampy meadows colloquially known as “Boheras” are a beautiful creation of nature, located below the Bandhavgarh hills.

This national park is also the home of leopard, gaur, sambhar, wild boar and deer. The Royal Bengal Tiger is the major attraction of this place. The tigers move around in search of a prey in the beautiful forests of sal and bamboo trees. Rewa, situated nearby was once the home of white tiger that is near to extinction now.

Bandhavgarh is one of the most popular zones for undertaking a safari to see the tigers. Elephant as well as jeep safaris are very popular here. It is a real paradise for avid wildlife photographers. October to June is the best period to visit this abode of tigers.
