Bandhavgarh National Park



Bandhavgarh National Park Travel GuideBandhavgarh is a small national park but thick forest sits in a bowl encircled by cliffs and wooded Vindhyan Mountains. The Park is spread over an area of 437 sq. km. This is also known as White Tiger territory. These have been found in the old state of Rewa for many years. I ts plains have a number of grass and reed covered wetlands where Kingfishers dive and Egrets sit poised, hunch-backed, in the shallows. The Bandhavgarh jungle becomes a living self-sustaining organism providing its own climate, atmosphere, water and nutrition through its recycling systems. It even has a sleep wake cycle. As more light fills the sky, Bandhavgarh begins to awaken.

Bandhavgarh was declared as a National Park in 1968. Since then, stringent steps have been taken to retain it as an unspoilt natural habitat. The finest of these hills is the Bandhavgarh hill, and on its highest point stands Bandhavgarh Fort. Though no records remain to show when the fort was constructed, it is believed to be about 2000 years old. Several dynasties have ruled the fort: for example, the Maghas from the 1st century A.D, the Vakatakas from the 3rd century; the Sengars from the 5th century, and the Kalachuris from the 10th century.The oldest signs of habitation, are the caves dug into the sandstone, near the fort. Several of these contain Brahmi inscriptions dating from the 1st century B.C. Prior to becoming a National Park, the forest range around the region had been maintained as a Shikargarh, or game preserve, of the Maharajahs of Rewa.
