Sawai Madhopur Tour

Location
Located amidst 12 acres of lush gardens, this 70-year-old hunting lodge exudes a rustic, earthy charm and an air of history. The lodge is a 20-minute drive from the Ranthambhore National Park, which is famous for its tiger population. Sawai Madhopur is the gateway to the world renowned Ranthambhore National Park-the famous tigers reserve.

Unveil the past!!
The name Ranthambhore is derived from two hills in the area, Ran and Thanbhor. Another version says that Ranthambhore was once called Rana Stambhapura or City of the Pillars of War. Ranthambhore has been a witness to the rise and fall of many rulers and a series of battle scenes. In the 13th century A.D., Govinda, the grandson of Prithviraj Chauhan took over the reign of the land. Later, his successor Vagbhatta beautified the city and built a noteworthy temple at Jhain. In the middle of 15th century A.D., Rana Kumbha captured the fort and gifted it to his son to be occupied later by the Hada Rajputs of Bundi and Mughal Emperors Akbar and Aurangazeb. Mughal emperor Shah Alam gifted it to Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh 1 of Jaipur in 1754 and since then it was mainted as trhe hunting preserve of the Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh were part of the royal part of hunting parties who stayed here.
