The Bandhavgarh area has much to offer, from jeep safaris at Bandhavgarh National Park, bartering in the market, the impressive Bandhavgarh Fort, and the chance to seek blessings at Jwalamukhi Temple.
Bandhavgarh was established in 1968 as a National Park, and later become a tiger reserve under Project Tiger in 1993. It is divided in three zones, the Tala, the Magdi, and the Bamera, with the Tala being the most popular due to the better opportunities for sighting a tiger.
The former game preserve of the Maharajas, Bandhavgarh National Park today has one of the highest tiger populations in India, so it is one of the best places to spot a flash of stripy fur. The park also has a large breeding leopard population, around 250 bird species, 70 varieties of butterfly and many reptiles.
Jwalamukhi Temple is a sacred Hindu temple dedicated to Goddess Jwalamukhi, the deity of Flaming Mouth. The Temple hosts a fair twice a year during the Navratirs of Chaitra and Aswin, where devotees make offerings whilst circling a sacred fire.
