The park combined with Sawai Man Singh sanctuary area, covers approximately 500 Sq.Km. was declared as a wildlife sanctuary in 1957. Since 1974, the Ranthambore wildlife sanctuary is known as "Project Tiger". There are many reservoirs of water located all over the park, which provide relief to the forest inhabitants during the extreme summer months. The park is full of old mosques, wells, and other historic ruins dated back to the 10th century. A magnificent fort atop a high crag is a former centre of a Hindu kingdom, later in the reign of Moghal Emperor Akbar. This gives the Ranthambore wildlife sanctuary a unique, wonderful and mixed flavor of nature, history and wildlife. These tigers are famous for being seen in the daytime too, due to their lack of fear of humans traveling in vehicles, due to which the tourists get to see the big cats.
