"Bustling with wild life"

This prominent sanctuary is toured by thousands of tourists and is a wonderful place for esthetes and wildlife enthusiasts. The sanctuary supports a healthy population of wild animals including wild elephants, crocodiles, spotted deer, tigers, and leopards. It is also a repository of medicinal plants. The surrounding view of the sanctuary is breathtaking.
