Ranthambore National Park is one of the famous National Parks in India. Wedged between Aravali and Vindhyas, Ranthambore Tiger Reserve is located 14 km from Sawai Madhopur on the midway between the towns of Bharatpur and Kota in Rajasthan India. Covering 400 sq km of the forested region, Ranthambore National Park was announced a wildlife sanctuary in 1957. It was taken under ‘Project Tiger’ in 1974. Ranthambore was declared a national park in 1981.

Ranthambore tiger reserve’s romantic setting, with a 1000 year old abandoned fortress, turquoise lakes and especially it’s ‘friendly’ tigers have made Ranthambore a popular destination for wildlife film makers. Tigers are readily observed during daylight, hunting or lazing about, oblivious of jeep-loads of tourists and their cameras. Ranthambore was once the private hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur.


The region of Ranthambore is rich in history. This region was under the control of the Rajput King Hamir but was defeated by Ala-ud-din Khilji’s army in AD 1301. The history of Ranthambore reached the pinnacle of its glory when Emperor Akbar captured it in 1569 AD. He also took over the control of the fort from the Rajputs. The painters and artists have painted this event in miniature paintings of the Akbarnama. The fort was transferred to the Kachwaha rulers of Jaipur later and remained under their control till 1949 when Jaipur was made the part of Rajasthan. The region is celebrated for several hunting parties organized in this region for dignitaries.
