Ranthambore National Park is one of the prime examples of Project Tiger’s
conservation efforts in Rajasthan. The forests around the Ranthambore Fort were
once, the private hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur. The desire to
preserve the game in these forests for sport, was responsible for their
conservation, and subsequent rescue by Project Tiger.The Park sprawls over an
estimated area of 400 sq kms. Steep crags embrace a network of lakes and rivers,
and a top one of these hills, is the impressive Ranthambore Fort, built in the
10th century. The terrain fluctuates between impregnable forests and open
bushland. The forest is the typically dry deciduous type, with dhok, being the
most prominent tree. The entry point to the Park, goes straight to the foot of
the fort and the forest rest house, Jogi Mahal. The latter boasts of the
second-largest banyan tree in India. The Padam Talab, the Raj Bagh Talab and the
Malik Talab are some of the lakes in the area, that attract the tiger
population. They have been spotted at the edges of these lakes, and Jogi Mahal
itself. Old crumbling walls, ruined pavilions, wells, and other ancient
structures stand witness to the region's glorious past.
