Mukundpur - Amidst the roar of White Tigers


India’s maiden White Tiger Safari is a treat for wildlife lovers. Located in the heart of India, this beautiful place is surrounded by water bodies at one end and by the forest at the other. Mukundpur is named after Raja Mukund Dev, since it was his birthplace. Mukundpur has a strong historical significance, since the first white tiger of the world was spotted here by Rewa Maharaja Martand Singh in 1951.
