Panna | Panna National Park: Madhya Pradesh

Forest in and around panna were once the royal hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Panna, Chattarpur and Bijawar. They alone enjoyed the privilege of hunting here. The area was declared the Gangau Wildlife Sanctuary in 1975. It became a National Park in 1981 on the recommendation of a committee chaired by Shri Lokendra Singh. In 1994 it became India's 22nd Tiger Reserve. Panna today is the only diamond bearing area being mined in the country. One of the open cast mines at Majhgawan is located next to the Park's Hinnauta gate.
