History of Bandipur National Park

Bandipur was once the private game reserve of the Mysore maharajas. In 1931, a sanctuary of 90 sq. km was created in the Bandipur Reserve Forest. Soon, this small area proved to be ineffective in terms of wildlife conservation. Subsequently, a larger area of 800 sq. km named the Venugopala Wildlife Park after the reigning deity of the area was created here. In 1973, the Bandipur Tiger Reserve was constituted and became part of Project Tiger in India. Today, Bandipur National Park is one of 15 tiger reserves under Project Tiger aimed at safeguarding tigers in India.
