Bandhavgarh: Where History and Wildlife Converge

The name 'Bandhavgarh' echoes with ancient tales and historical significance, revealing a unique blend of mythology and wildlife. Derived from the words 'Bandhav' meaning brother and 'Garh' meaning fort, the name itself has a fascinating origin.

Mythological Roots:
According to the epic Ramayana, Bandhavgarh holds a connection with the legendary battle of Lanka. It is believed that Lakshmana, the brother of Rama, was gifted Bandhavgarh by his elder sibling after the victorious battle. The park's name finds its roots in this tale, and the existing Bandhavgarh National Park is named after the historic Bandhavgarh Fort.

Bandhavgarh Fort:
Situated on a hillock in the Vindhya range in Umaria, the Bandhavgarh Fort is more than just a historical relic. Legends from ancient books like Shiv Purana and Narad Panch Ratna describe how the fort was reconstructed by two monkeys who built a bridge between Lanka and the mainland. The fort bears the marks of human activity and architectural prowess, with man-made caves, inscriptions, and rock paintings adorning its structure.

Historical Significance:
Until the capital moved to Rewa in 1617 A.D., local rulers governed from the Bandhavgarh Fort. The fort, perched atop the Bandhavgarh hill, gradually fell into neglect after the capital's relocation, transforming into a royal hunting reserve. The maharajas, in their pursuit of luck, set out to hunt precisely 109 tigers each. By 1914, Maharaja Venkat Raman Singh had taken down 111 tigers.

Conservation Efforts:
The unregulated hunting and forest devastation prompted Maharaja Martand Singh of Rewa to propose the establishment of a national park in 1968. Initially covering 105 sq km, the park aimed at curbing poaching and addressing water scarcity. The conservation initiatives proved successful, leading to a significant rise in the Indian wildlife population, including the majestic tiger.

Expansion and Recognition:
Recognizing the need for broader conservation, Bandhavgarh became a part of Project Tiger in 1993. The park's territory expanded to include a core area of 694 sq km and a buffer zone of 437 sq km, officially designated as the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve.

Bandhavgarh stands as a testament to the coexistence of history and wildlife, where the echoes of ancient legends mingle with the roars of tigers, creating a sanctuary that preserves both the natural and cultural heritage of India.
