The National Park is home to Royal Bengal Tigers, White Tigers, Deers, and Leopards. Bandhavgarh National Park is known for its mixture of tropical forest and grasslands.

Bandhavgarh National Park is spread over 105 square km. The Bandhavgarh has a Sanskrit derivation which means “Brother’s Fort.” The folklore says that Lord Ram gave the Bandhavgarh fort to his brother Lankhsman to keep observing the enemies from Lanka. I don’t know how much of it is true, but the locals said to me so.

The Bandhavgarh National Park is divided into three zones Tala, Magadhi and Khitauli. Tala is the location where you will find tigers in most numbers. The official figure says that there are more than 25 species of birds, 80 of butterflies, and 37 species of mammals.

At the Bandhavgarh fort, You will find a beautiful statue alongside a pond of God Vishnu sleeping. The figure is called as Shesh-Shaiya. The statue depicts Vishnu sleeping on a seven-headed snake.

Bandhavgarh is fantastic, and your chance to see a tiger up close is very good. Bandhavgarh will be enriching and wil experience for you, it certainly was for me.
