The Ranthambore was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1955 and as a National Park in 1980, seven years after the launch of Project Tiger. In 1984, the southern and northeast forests were declared as Sawai Man Singh and Keladevi sanctuaries. Before Independence, the forests of Ranthambhore were the preserve of the maharajas of Jaipur who frequently hunted here, and royal hunts go back to the 12th century AD. These forests were the favorite hunting grounds of Prithviraj Chauhana, a Rajput ruler whose hunting zeal took him into other ruler’s lands and consequently into battle! In recent times, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were Maharaja Man Singh’s special guests in 1960.
The 392 sq.km of this National Park is perhaps India’s finest eg. of Project Tiger – conservation effort started by the government in an attempt to save the decreasing number of tigers in India. Park was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1955 & a National Park in 1980. In 1984, the southern and northeast forests were declared as Sawai Man Singh and Keladevi sanctuaries.
