Bandhavgarh Travel

A place of mythological and legendary significance, Bhandavgarh in Madhya Pradesh is famed for its National Park. 'Bandhav' in English means brother and ‘Garh’ means fort, and it is believed that the ancient Bhandhavgarh Fort was gifted by Lord Rama to his younger brother Lakshmana. The existence of Bhandavgarh dates back to around 2000 years ago, and you will find several man made caves with inscriptions and rock paintings. Also, famed as the land of tigers, Bhandhavgarh lets you explore some of the amazing attractions here.


The Bandhavgarh National Park offers open jeep safari, which is one of the best ways to explore the wild habitat. There are four zones to enter the park, which are Tala, Magadhi, Panpatha, and Khitauli.

Chakradhara is a place in Bandavgarh National Park which is famous for tiger sighting. The place offers different species of both flora and fauna. Bheema, Bamera, Chandini, Kankati, Rajbhra, Dotty Krishna, Sukhipatia, and Marchaini, are few among those wild cats. It is through Chakradhar that one can head to another famous attraction in the park, Bandhavgarh Fort.

Bandavgarh Fort is located atop the Bandavgarh Hill, and is home to many endangered species of vultures. The fort was the seat of rulers of Rewa State, and there are statues of various incarnations of Lord Vishnu inside the fort, which were carved out of single rock.

It is believed that this fort remained under the reign of many rulers like the Maghas, the Vakatakas, the Sengars, the Kalchuris and the Baghels. Near the fort lies a temple dedicated to Lakshmana (Bandhavdish).
The national park also has a number of accommodations to augment the experience of the travellers visiting the park. While some are luxury accommodations and some are budget hotels, there are a few that have this quite obvious jungle theme.
