About The Bandhavgarh National Forest
Bandhavgarh National Forest is located in Umaria District of Madhya Pradesh. This place has historical importance that goes back to the legends of Ramayana and is very popular due to huge population of Bengal tiger and other flora & fauna found here. The name Bandhavgarh is made of Bandhav and Garh, where Bandhav means brother and Garh means fort, which means brother’s fort. This fort was gifted to Lakshmana by Lord Rama. The fort has many architectural techniques, paintings, manmade caves & inscriptions that throw little light on life at that time.
The national forest has a wide array of flora & fauna with around 22 species of varied mammals & an exquisite range of more than 250 bird species. From Langurs, Asiatic Jackal, Bengal Fox, Sloth Bear, different variety of Deer’s, Hyenas, and Leopard to the royal Bengal tiger, all animas are seen and sighted at this forest.
