In 1974 it gained the protection of “Project Tiger” and seven years later i.e. in 1981, it got its present status of a National Park. The Ranthambhore National Park is one of the most picturesque Parks in India. This is because the forest is interspersed with ruins of historic monuments that are reminiscent of a bygone era. A major feature of the Park is the impressive Ranthambhore Fort, located on the fringes of the Park and providing an excellent bird’s eye view of the entire forest below. Spread over an area of 1,334 sq. kilometers and dominated by thorny or scrub forest with a few patches of thick deciduous forest, the majority of the wildlife is concentrated around three major lakes. These lakes, namely the Rajbagh, Padam Talao and Madan Talao, are all man- made lakes which carry water even during the hot summers. This varied flora supports a large number of animals including a variety of deer, the sloth bear, the shy caracal, a modest number of snub-nosed crocodiles, the striped hyena, wild boar, leopards and of course “the big cat”, the tiger.
