World’s first White Tiger Safari to come up in Rewa
Powerful roar of white tigers will soon rever-berate in Madhya Pradesh’s Vindhya region as the world’s first White Tiger Safari would begin in Rewa, which was once home to this rare breed of the big cats. “The world’s first White Tiger Safari would begin soon at Mukundpur near Rewa where the first white tiger was spotted by erstwhile ruler Maharaja Martand Singh in 1951 from
Sidhi forest area (it was named as Mohan),” Madhya Pradesh Public Relations Minister Rajendra Shukla told PTI on Friday. Initially, two female white tigers would be brought to begin the Safari and later a male white tiger, too, would be introduced to them for multiplication, he said. “Nearly 99 per cent work on the Safari has been completed and it would be launched anytime next month,” the minister said.
The white tiger was caught by Maharaja Martand Singh on May 27, 1951 from Sidhi district’s Bargadi for-est area and later the animal was brought to Govindarh Palace in Rewa from where it escaped the very next day and then again found in Mukundpur area about 26-27 km away from Rewa. Mohan then remained in the area for over two decades and its progenies spread gradually to other parts of the world, Shukb said. “Though its progenies made their home in different parts of the world and zoos, they were found in their place of origin till 1976 only,” he said. “Now, the white tigers would roar again in the area after nearly 40 years once the safari would begins. The zoological park already existing in Mukundur will now be known as “Mukundpur Zoo and Mohan White Tiger Safari” while the breeding centre will be named after Maharaja Martand Singh, he said.
