Ranthambore was established as the Sawai Madhopur Game Sanctuary in 1955 by the Indian Government, and was declared one of the Project Tiger reserves in 1973. Ranthambore became a national park in 1980. In 1984 the adjacent forests were declared the Sawai Man Singh Sanctuary and Keladevi Sanctuary, and in 1991 the tiger reserve was enlarged to include Sawai Man Singh and Keladevi sanctuaries, a totally tropical lilt. The Ranthambore National Park, at the junction of the Aravallis and the Vindhyas, is a unique juxtaposition of natural and historical richness, standing out conspicuously in a vast arid and denuded tract of eastern Rajasthan, barely 14 km. from the town of Sawai Madhopur.

The Ranthambore National Park
Ranthambore Fort

Ranthambore Fort
Ranthambhore's royal past manifests itself in the well-preserved imposing fort, built in 994 A.D. atop a steep high creek 200 meters above sea level. Ruined pavilions, walls, chhatris and splendid monuments are interspersed within the majestic fort. An 8th century A.D. Ganesh temple on an open land attracts thousands of devotees and is the venue for an annual fair held on. Bhadrapad Sudi Chaturthi, fourth day of the bright half, in the month of Bhadra.

The fort is believed to be the site at which the first jauhar in Rajput history was performed. In the early 14th century, the ruler of the fort, Hammir deva, was engaged in a protracted battle with the muslim forces. Although Hammir repulsed the Muslim invaders; the women who were installed in the fort for their safety heard that he had succumbed on the battlefield. In usual Rajput style, preferring death to dishonor, they committed mass suicide. When confronted with the grisly news, the victorious Hammir beheaded himself before the image of God Shiva in the temple at the fort.

From a distance, the fort is not an imposing edifice, being almost indiscernible on its hilltop looking out over the lake of Padam Talab. However it offers very fine views form the disintegrating walls of the Badal Mahal, on its northern side, and its seven enormous gates still intact.

Sawai Mansingh Sanctuary :
The terrain is flat and rocky and some hills with gentle slopes. Devpura irrigation dam, in the Sanctuary is a useful source of water for wildlife and good habitat for aquatic flora and fauna.

Keladevi Sanctuary :
The Keladevi Sanctuary is northern extension of the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve in Karauli and Sawai Madhopur districts. There are hills in the south, north and eastern parts. At many places, it has a curious feature of two separate ridges running parallel to each other. The forest between such ridges dense. The Sanctuary is bounded in the west by the river Banas and in the south by the river Chambal. The Banas finally flows into the Chambal.

Jungle Safari :
There are about 42 tigers in Ranthambore National Park. A good network of gravel tracks crisscross the park and safaris are undertaken in open-sided jeeps driven by ranger.

Sawai Mansingh
 

Langur Monkey

The tiger is not the only attraction at Ranthambhor; although it is the one park resident people come to see. We were lucky to see several varieties of birds including these owlets peering through their burrow pictured here on the right and of course the ubiquitous langur monkey. Other animals in the reserve include leopard, caracal, hyena, jackal, jungle cat, marsh crocodiles, wild boar, bears and various species of deer.
