The Bandhavgarh National Park is located in Sahdol district of central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Nestled among the Vindhya hills, Bandhavgarh covers an area of 448 square kilometres.

Bandhavgarh National Park came into existence in the year 1968 when the Maharajah of Rewa handed over the area to the government for formation of the park.

Initially, the park covered an area of only 106 square kilometres.

At a time when the tiger population of the country is fast depleting due to rampant poaching, Bandhavgarh's tiger population has shown a steady rise. On a visit to the park, the chances of spotting tigers is rated as very high. It is said that great harmony prevails between the beast and humans in the area.
