Kamleshwar Dam

This dam is situated in the centre of the Sasan-Gir National Park. This dam is built over the Hiran River, which is one of the seven rivers that drain in the area of Gir Sanctuary. This serves as the only natural habitat for the Aisatic Lions.

 

Rann of Kutch

In Sanskrit, the word Kutch translates to tortoise, and if you were to look up Kutch on a map of India, you’d find the resemblance uncanny!
