Rajiv Gandhi National Park

Rajiv Gandhi National Park in Assam is located at the northern bank of the Brahmaputra River. It was established as a sanctuary in 1985 and was declared a national park in 1999. It is known for hosting great Indian rhinoceros, pygmy hog, Asian elephant, Bengal tiger and others.
The Assam Cabinet recently passed a resolution to rename the national park as Orang National Park. The renaming came in line with the demands from the representatives of the Adivasi and tea tribe communities. The national park spans across an area of 78.29 sq km.
