Bandhavgarh is most well-known for its National Park. The forests of Bandhavgarh inspired Rudyard Kipling to write the renowned ‘Jungle Book.’ The woodlands were originally used as a hunting area by the Maharajas of Rewa, resulting in an alarming decline in the number of tigers. It was designated a National Park in 1968, and now it is home to over 250 kinds of birds and 22 different types of mammals.
