The park name Bandhavgarh is derived from the most famous hillock of the area, which is said to be given by Hindu Lord Rama to his brother Lakshmana to keep a watch on Lanka (Ceylon). Bandhavgarh National Park besides the sought-after tiger also provides habitat to many endangered wildlife species like spotted deer, chital and langurs, sambar, Indian bison, chinkara, nilgais, barking deer and jackals. This national park is known for the highest density of tigers in the world. Apart from the wild animals, park is also home to about other 250 species of birds like green pigeons, hornbills, browed fantails, gray Malabar and green bee eaters. The park was included in the Project Tiger Network in 1993, in consideration of its importance and potentiality. From the eastern end of the park, rivers Johilla and Son flow.
