The Bandhavgarh national Park was famous as the Home for white tiger which ruled this jungle for a long time. In the palace of Maharaja of Rewa one can find the white tiger called Mohun on display which was The last one captured by Maharaja Martand Singh in the year 1951. This Park had the highest density of different variety of Royal Bengal tigers.
Bandhavgarh National Park located in the Umaria district of Madhya Pradesh is one of the favorite national parks in India. It was declared a national park in 1968, with an area of 105 km2 only. Later Project Tiger constituted in 1972 and also the Wildlife Protection Act of 1972 came into force in this park. In 1982, three more ranges were added, namely Khitauli, Magdhi, and Kallawah to the existing Tala range increasing the area of Bandhavgarh to 448 km2. The buffer is spread over the forest divisions of Umaria and Katni,and totals 820 km2.
Bandhavgarh National park got its name from the most prominent hillock of the area given as a gift by Hindu Lord Rama to his brother Lakshmana to keep a watch on Lanka (Ceylon). The name Bandhavgarh means Brother’s Fort in Sanskrit and is as old as 2000 years ago where you will still find several man made caves with amazing rock paintings. You can also see a gigantic idol of Vishnu lying down known as Sesh Shai. As of now visit to Bandhavgarh fort is restricted as M.P. Forest Department and no longer grants permission to anyone.

The hilltop is considered best for photography of flying birds due to the advantage of being positioned at the top which makes a worthwhile addition to a Bandhavgarh National Park wildlife tour.
The Bandhavgarh located in Umaria district is surrounded by a large number of smaller hills separated by gently sloping valleys and swampy meadows, locally known as ‘bohera’. Regional folklore suggests that Bandhavgarh belonged to rulers of the Gond Empire of the Pandro caste are the original inhabitant. Today also you can find the descendants of Gond kings still living in the nearby areas of the fort. Gond kings constructed 12 talab ponds, of which only few remain.
Bandhavgarh was the business centre for the traders traveling between Kaushambi and Bharhut, at that time known as Bardawati (Bhaudhya root). During the Kalachuri dynasty it was called as Haihay Kshetra.
Various dynasties have ruled the fort: for example, Mauryans from the 3rd century BC, Vakataka rulers from the 3rd-5th century, Sengars from the 5th century, and the Kalachuris from 10th century. In the 13th century, the Baghels took over, ruling from Bandhavgarh until 1617, when Maharaja Vikramaditya Singh moved his capital to Rewa. The last inhabitants deserted the fort in 1935.
Bandhavgarh National Park had a small population of gaur left but all of them also died due some disease which was passed from cattle to them. In 2011-12 about fifty gaur were relocated and brought to Bandhavgarh from Bandhavghar National Park as an initiative program to reverse the local extinction of this species.
Till date Twenty plus calves have been born since with few mortalities taken place owing to predation and other natural factors, but the population is positively growing. Hopefully this will turn out to be a successful reintroduction. This project was executed by Madhya Pradesh Forest department, Wildlife Institute of India, Taj Safaris and Conservation corporation of Africa by technical collaboration.
Tigers And Humans Have Shared The Earth For Thousands Of Years And Their Relationship Has Not Being Close Or Friendly. Tigers Have Are Very Much Territorial Hence We Should Always Respect His Territory As He Respects Ours. The Social System Of Tigers Is Connected Through Visual Signals, Scent Marks And Vocalizations and they Use Their Body Weight To Knock The Prey To The Ground And Kills With A Bite On The Neck. They Are Very Good Swimmers And Have Been Known To Kill Prey While Swimming Also. Tigers Essentially Are Solitary By Nature, Except During Mating Season And When Females Bear Young.
But Many People Feel A Deep Admiration And Devotion For Tigers. Though Humans Are Often Fearful Of Tigers As They Have Become Their Main Predator And Have Being The Most Dangerous Threat For The Survival Of These Cats. It Is No Secret That Many Tigers Have Killed By People.
Tiger-Human Conflicts Is Usually Inevitable Wherever And Wherever People And Large Carnivores Coexist. This Conflicts Revealed Humans As The Encroachers And Tiger As Victim And The Story Goes On With The Jungle Shrinking And Settlements, Cultivation And Development Activities In Wildlife Corridors Increasingly You Will Find Villages Even In The Core Jungle Area Leaving No Space For Wild Life.
Basically We Are The Ones To Continually Invade Their Natural Habitat And Then Complain When Tiger Attacks Do Occur. We Should Understand That When We Destroy Their Natural Habitat, They Are Forced To Live In Areas That They Never Inhabited Before To Find Food And Survive. Hence Tigers mark their presence along the border of Such Jungle Settlement to hunt and get Feed On The Domestic Animals which are Easily available then the Jungle Prey.
Situation Starts getting worse when Farmers In Such A Situation Sometimes Use Poison And Pesticides To Kill The Tigers And Protect Their Livestock. Even Though Such Practices Are Illegal, It Is Still Happening. Over The Last Century, These Cats Have Lost Large Areas due to which, Only A Few Thousand Tigers Remain In Relatively Small Areas Which Is quite Alarming.
In Short Space Has Been The Main Factor Causing Conflicts Between Tigers And Humans.
Today The Numbers Of Tigers Are Increasing But Still We All Have To Take Efforts To Support And Fight For Protecting The Tigers And Other Threatened And Endangered Wildlife.
1. A Tigeress Is Very Possessive For Its Cubs And Goes To Any Extend To Protect Them If Any Species Stroll In Her Territory
2. In Most Places, Adults Tigers Are Wary Of Human Beings And Avoid Encounters With Strolling Humans In Its Territory But Sub Adults Or Teen Tigers Usually Attack And Tries To Be Playful On Any Moving Objects Or Species As They Are On The Learning Stage.
3. If Any Tiger Is Injures By Any Ways It Tends To Attack On Any Species As To Maintain Safe Distance.
4. Tigers Do Not Tolerate Interference In Their Territory Especially During Mating Phase Or When It Has Killed Its Prey. It Attacks To Prove Its Existence And To Drive The Encroachers Away.
5. Due To Shrinking Of The Jungle Due To Encroachments Activities Even In The Core Area By Humans The Tigers Prey On The Humans Unattended Live Stock That Wanders In The Jungle Territory.
6. Tigers Have Consistently Lost Their Natural Habitat And A Rapid Decline In The Availability Of Prey, Forcing Them To Barge Into Human Encroachments In Search Of Food And Water
