Category: Sense of Place

We tracked Sitara to his favourite resting place, the ruined Raj Bagh palace. Here, this dominant Royal Bengal tiger, also known as Star due to the mark above his left eye, gazes out over the former royal hunting grounds of the rajas and maharajas of Jaipur. Ranthambhore represents a unique blend of rich Indian history and iconic wildlife.

Location: Ranthambhore, Rajasthan, India
