Ranthambore, situated in the state of Rajasthan, is one of the smallest tiger reserve project. As the name suggest it comes from the vast fort that stands in the middle of the forest. The name Ranthambore is derived from two hills of the area, Ran and Thanbhor. In fact there is endless speculation about the founding of the fort, much of it compiled in the Hamirraso, the account of the reign of the 13th century, Rana Hamir. While Ranthambore generally believed to have built by King Jayant of Chauhan dynasty in A.D. 1110, others say it was founded by King Sapaldaksha in A.D. 944, also a chauhan. Some other people say that ruler Rati Dev, who was related to king Hasti, who built Hastinapura, was the original founder. The fort has an area of 4.5 sq.kms, while the circumference of its walls is 7 kms. The area around it is dotted with ruins : Lake Palaces, ancient step wells, cupolas, temples, and memorial stones, all are related to Ranthambore’s varied and fascinating history. [Ranthambore History] In 1754, the Ranthambor fort was ruled by mughal emperor, Ahmad Shah. The king of Jaipur, Sawai Madho Singh requested to Emperor Ahmad Shah for check the incursions of the Marathas, the warrior clan of western India. But Ahmad Shah, refused the request of Sawai Madho Singh. Consequently, Sawai Madho Singh fortified the nearby settlement of Sherpur and named it Sawai Madhopur in 1763. Today, Sawai Madhopur is a thriving town, 14 kms from Ranthambhore Fort. An 18th century traveler described the fort as being famous throughout India, well-protected completely inaccessible, concealed in mountainous regions where the ridges were high and surrounded the entire fort, leaving only the thick forest gorges below as entrances and exits which could easily be defended. Only cannons could blast through the walls and force entry, and the notorious inaccuracy of cannon fire meant that the fort justified its reputation as unconquerable. Before the arrival of the British, the Minas seem to have lived fairly freely and easily in the forest, but their control over inaccessible trade routes through their land was so strong that they were considered thieves, marauders and murderes by their new masters, who saw them as a thorn in the side of quick prosperity. By 1820 the Rajput and British armies had combined to ‘subdue’ the jungles and teach these people a lesson. They did this by forming an army corps to recruit as many of the minas as they could as soldiers; for the rest, persistent force was used in an effort to make them change their ways. By the turn of century, the Ranthambhore forests had become the private hunting reserves of the Maharajas of Jaipur. In one sense this slowed down the destruction of the forest and the tiger, since only special guests were invited to shoot at an annual one-month camp held in the winter as the edge of Sawai Madhopur, the town just outside what is now Ranthambhore National Park.
