about sanjay gandhi national park

Spread over an area of over 40 sq miles and surrounded on three sides by the teeming Mumbai metropolis, the protected jungles of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park are full of hidden surprises and should not be missed at any cost. Initially called the Borivalli National Park, it was renamed after the tragic death of Sanjay Gandhi, the son of ex-Prime Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi.

The rich biodiversity of the  Sanjay Gandhi National Park attracts a large number of tourists from all around the world. And, it is one of the most popular picnic spots for the locals. This bustling forest is home to a large number of birds like Kingfisher, Sunbird, Malabar Whistling Thrush etc. Around 251 species of migratory, land and water birds are found here. Among the wildlife, you can easily spot Macaques, Boars, Civets, Antelopes, and if you are lucky enough then even Flying foxes, Lions and Leopards. Talking about lions, the park has regular lion and safaris every 20 minutes. The park also boasts of having around 172 varieties of butterflies, which surpasses the number for all of the UK. The spectacular ones include Tiger Egg-flies, Blue Oak Leaf, Jezebels, Orange Tipped and Blue Mormons. If exploring the jungles doesn't get your happy hormones singing, you can try rock climbing, boating, go to the mini zoo, get up close and personal with crocodiles at the Crocodile Park, or simply follow the walking path which meanders into the jungle.

There is also a narrow gauge train (Vanrani) which takes you around the important spots in the park. Deep within the thickets of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, past several waterfalls, lie the 109 Buddhist caves chiseled out of basaltic outcroppings. An important Buddhist settlement in 3rd century A.D., Kanheri became a University center during Mauryan and Kushan empires and a number of Brahmi and Devanagari inscriptions and epigraphs can be found here. A shuttle bus service is available which takes passengers from the park entrance to the caves and back. Last shuttle bus back from the caves is at 4:00PM.  The area around the caves is a great place for spotting animals and rock climbing. Apart from these caves, the park also contains a Jain temple and a Mahatma Gandhi memorial. Encroachment of the surrounding slums and residential complexes, as well as poaching, are a major problem.
