Bandhavgarh has been referenced almost 2000 years ago, in ancient texts of the Narad-Panch Ratra and the Shiva Purana. The oldest sign of habitation seen here are the caves dug into the sandstone to the north of the fort which include several Brahmi inscriptions dating from the 1st century CE. Various dynasties have ruled the fort, for example, the Maghas from the 1st century CE, the Vakatakas from the 3rd century CE. From then onwards, Bandhavgarh was ruled by a succession of dynasties including the Chandela Kings. After independence from the British Raj, Bandhavgarh remained the private property of the Maharaja until he gave it to the state for the formation of the National Park in 1968. As the park was established, poaching and hunting was brought under control and the population of animals rose dramatically. The Tigers in this case prospered as the 1986 extension provided much needed forest to accommodate them.
