Since historical times this region has been a favorite hunting and residence spot of Kachwaha Rajput rulers. The forts and other ancient edifices have been standing tall since the 10th century AD. But when it comes to Ranthambore National Park, Sawai Madhopur Gaming Sanctuary was established across an area of 282 sq km in 1955 by the Government of India to protect wildlife. In 1973, the Ranthambore forest was also listed under the Project Tiger initiated by the Government of India to save and enhance the endangered species of animals within the country. Ranthambore forest was declared a National Park in 1980. The adjacent forests of this park were established as the Sawai Mansingh Sanctuary and Keladevi Sanctuary and this tiger reserve was extended further to incorporate the two sanctuaries in 1992.



Tips for visiting

  • The forest remains closed from May to September for safaris because it is the mating season of tigers.
