Ranthambhore National Park
Team ‘Design Green India’ recently visited a famous Indian national park – Ranthambore National Park and was amazed with the flora out there.  The flora was consisted of around 300 species dominated by deciduous trees. The national park roughly covers 500 sq km and has a famous tiger sanctuary, a fort (considered one of the strongest forts in India) and a Ganesh Temple. Ganesh temple area is largely populated by Hanuman langurs. Tigers are main attraction of the sanctuary. They can be seen roaming in open as they are not that much feared of human presence around them.
park contains many lakes in middle of forest

According to information provided on park’s official website (http://www.ranthamborenationalpark.com/flora.html), flora is mainly consists of Magnifera indica (Aam), Tamarandus indica(Imli) , Accasia nilotica (Babul), Ficus benghalensis (Bargad), Zizyphus mauritania (Ber), Accacia catetchu (Khair), Phoenix sylvestris (Khajur), Azadirachta indica (Neem) etc.

A red colored lake was seen in the national park (the red color was due to red algae most probably).

A garden is maintained here by Archaeological Survey of India in fort area. It is nicely bordered by purple and orange bougainvilleas.
