With including Buffer area total area of Bandhavgarh national park is 437 Square Km. Do you know why it is named as a Badhavgarh National Park? What is the meaning of Bandhavgarh? Let me tell you, The name is derived from the most prominent cliff of the area. People said that this cliff was given to Lord Lakshmana by his brother Lord Rama to keep watch on Lanka. Hence it is named as Bandhavgarh National Park. Bandhavgarh means Brother's fort.
