Fort and Historic Sites
 

A unique feature of Bandhavgarh that marks it out from other national parks of Madhya Pradesh is that is has many historic monuments with traces of human activity from over 2000 years including caves with 1st century BC inscriptions. It was ruled by the Mauryans from 3rd century BC, Vakataka rulers from 3rd century to 5th century the Sengars from 5th century, the Kalachuris from 10th century and Baghels from the 13th century. After 1617, when Maharaja Vikramaditya Singh of the Baghel dynasty moved his capital to Rewa, it remained a wildlife reserve of the royal family till independence and became a national park in the 1960s. The imposing Bandhavgarh Fort rises 811 meters in the heart of the national park. A remarkable feature of the fort is the number of fine 10th century rock sculpture depicting the Avatars or incarnations of Lord Vishnu. There are 12th century temples near the fort. This site is associated with the Ramayana and the mystic poet Kabir.
