Wildlife of India

India is one of the favourite destinations for wildlife lovers as the country is a habitat of many beautiful species that anyone would love to see. Many explorers, researchers, photographers and reporters visit India every year, to be a spectator of the rich wildlife found in India. India has a rich pool of wildlife species that comprises some of the most endangered species as well which includes Greater One-Horned Rhinoceros, Bengal Tigers, Asiatic Lion, Lion Tailed Macaque, Snow Leopard and many more.

These species have their habitats specific to their nature and geographical conditions and due to their decreasing numbers the Indian Government has provided them proper protection in the form of forest reserves and national parks. 

While designing a trip at RD India Tours, we like to gain the interest of the travellers so that we can cover all the major wildlife sites and we also ensure that they get the maximum knowledge about the specific wildlife tour they pick and of course keeping their safety as our first priority.

Ancient legends and some distinct instincts of some of these animals make them more unique such as the Tigers of Sunderban National Park were famous as the man eating tigers of India as there were reportedly 50 killings every year by these tigers till 1983. 

Another reserve of India Bengal Tiger is “The Jim Corbett National Park” which is situated near the sub Himalayan range. Named after an English Hunter and Tracker James Edward Corbett, Jim Corbett national park is amongst the most liked wildlife destinations of India. Despite being rich in flora and fauna, this national park has a beautiful atmosphere and picturesque scenic beauty as the river Ganga flows besides the beautiful resorts in national park.

Majestic Asiatic lion (Pantheraleopersica) is another attraction for the wild life lovers in India as we have one of the oldest sanctuaries in Gujarat (Gir National Park) where we can see this amazing animal roaring and walking like a king of the Jungle. Gujarat is also a place where we have some rare and beautiful species of birds that always increases the eagerness of every bird watcher. Despite the instincts and nature of these wildlife animals we find India, there’s another thing that adds some degrees to the beauty of these animals that is “the involvement of these animals in Indian culture”. For example most of the temples of Southern Indian State Kerala own Elephants and they are beautifully decorated during Elephant Festival. Then there are involvements of many Indian animals in the Hindu mythological tales and legends. These animals are worshiped just like Indians worship the rivers, trees and even stones.

Travellers all over the world love to see such a great connection between mankind and wild animals and thus the Indian wildlife becomes one of their wildlife destination and at RD India Tours, we believe in making your tour memorable in all the possible ways.

Its recognised architectonic beauty includes a rhythmic combination of solids and voids, concave and convex and light shadow; like arches and domes any will increase the aesthetic side.

The relief work in marble and inlay with precious and semi-precious stones create it a monument apart as "the Jewel of Muslim art in India and one among the universally loved masterpieces of the world's heritage" it's the history of Taj Mahal that adds a soul to its magnificence, a soul that's full of love, loss and remorse, an example of how deeply a man wanted his wife to be known to everyone that even when she is dead he wanted her to be remained in his memory. He assured her memory would never fade away. This man was known as the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who was head-over-heels crazy and deeply in love with his beloved wife Mumtaz.

Mumtaz  Mahal, an inseparable companion of Shah Jahan, died in 1631, while birthing to their 14th child. It had been in the memory of his beloved wife that Shah Jahan built an impressive monument as a tribute to her, that we tend to these days called the "Taj Mahal". The construction of Taj Mahal started in the year 1631. The monument was built entirely out of white marble that was brought in from all over Asian country and central Asia. When an expenditure of roughly 32 million rupees, Taj Mahal was finally completed in the year 1653.

It was soon after the completion of Taj Mahal the King Shah Jahan was deposed by his own son Aurangzeb and was anaesthetize confinement at nearby Agra Fort. Shah Jahan, himself also, lies entombed in this sepulcher in conjunction with his wife. Moving further down the history, it had been at the end of the 19th century that British Viceroy Lord Curzon ordered a sweeping refurbishment project, which was completed in 1908, as a measure to restore what was lost during the Indian rebellion of 1857. Taj being blemished by British troopers and governance who also deprived the monument of its immaculate beauty by chiseling out precious stones and lazuli from its walls. Also, the British vogue lawns that we see nowadays adding to the beauty of Taj were transformed around the same time.
