     Bandipur National Park established in 1974 as a tiger reserve under Project Tiger, is a national park located in the Indian state of Karnataka, which is the state with the second highest tiger population in India. It is one of the premier Tiger Reserves in the country along with the adjoining Nagarhole national park. It was once a private hunting reserve for the Maharaja of the Kingdom of Mysore but has now been upgraded to Bandipur Tiger Reserve. Bandipur is known for its wildlife and has many types of biomes, but dry deciduous forest is dominant.

The park spans an area of 874 square kilometers (337 sq mi), protecting several species of India's endangered wildlife. Together with the adjoining Nagarhole National Park (643 sq. km (248 sq mi)), Mudumalai National Park (320 sq km (120 sq mi)) and Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary (344 sq km (133 sq mi)), it is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve totaling 2,183 sq km (843 sq mi) making it the largest protected area in southern India and largest habitat of wild elephants in south Asia.
