India is home to the world's largest wild tiger population.

As many as 1,400 of the 3,500 tigers left in the world can be found in India, according to the World Wildlife Fund, several of them in this park.

They can be easily spotted even during the daytime, whether busy hunting or at ease taking proper care of their young ones.

These include the Mansingh Sanctuary and the Kaila Devi Sanctuary.

Ranthambore National Park was once hailed as one of the famous hunting grounds of the Jaipur Maharajas.

Today the park is also a famous heritage site, thanks to pictorial ruins that dot it.
