Treated as the game reserve of the Maharajas of Rewa in the earlier times, the region was a major hunting ground of animals where Maharaja Raman Singh himself shot a stupendous figure of 111 tigers by 1914.
It was atrocities like these on the vulnerable wildlife on India that forced our authorities to take stringent action and ban the shooting of animals. Bandhavgarh is also known for its population of rare white tigers. The backdrop at Bandhavgarh consists of rocky hills with flattened tops, and valleys with grasslands.
