Bandhavgarh is located in Vindhya hills of Umaria district, Madhya Pradesh. In 1968 the area got its status of a National Park and now has become one of the preferred parks for Tiger Safari in India that includes photographing and tracking Tigers in wild. Known to have world’s highest density of Bengal Tigers the park is divided into four zones namely Magadhi, Khitauli, Tala and Panpatta.
Bandhavgarh is a unique paradise in Central India; where history and wildlife come together in a perfect communion of sorts. The name “bandhas-Garh” translates to “the brother’s fort” and is believed to be gifted by Hindu God Rama to his devoted ‘bandhav’ (brother) Laxmana when they returned victorious over Lanka (Ceylon).
Inside the park, there are twelve natural waterholes, several other historical monuments, and remains of ancient caves that exhibit a 2000-year-old rich historical past.
