Madhya Pradesh has got its first elephant colony in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve.


  • Bandhavgarh National Park is located in the Umaria district of Madhya Pradesh.

  • Bandhavgarh was declared a national park in 1968 and then became Tiger Reserve in 1993.

  • The park derives its name from the most prominent hillock of the area, which was said to be given by Hindu Lord Rama to his brother Lakshmana to keep a watch on Lanka. Hence the name Bandhavgarh (Sanskrit: Brother's Fort).
