Bandhavgarh Fort, Jabalpur Overview

A fort, believed to be nearly two millennia old and inhabited till the beginning of this century, lies right in the middle of the wilderness on the highest point of Bandhavgarh Hill - the most captivating sight among the 32 hills that dot the unspoilt landscape. Believed to be some 2000 years old, there are references of it in the ancient books, the Narad Panch-Ratna and the Shiva Purana.

Within the Bandhavgarh park is the ancient Bandhavgarh fort and caves. In the recent past, the Maharaja of Rewa last occupied the fort until it was designated as a National Park in 1968. The Bandhavgarh fort, enclosing an area of 560 acres, is an awesome sight.

A visit to this fort is highly recommended for a person of any taste. Surrounding the fort are a large number of smaller hills separated by gently sloping valleys, and caves with inscriptions in an indecipherable language.
