Older British buildings that were used as power hubs house today’s Parliament and Secretariat.

Pench National Park is named after a river that flows through the region, the Pench district hosts one among many patches of Central India’s forests – and the Pench National Park is a corridor for wildlife across this diverse habitat of forest and grassland. The rich biodiversity of the area had been recorded in an ancient official document of the emperor Akbar, a Mughal ruler and the park continues to support large populations of herbivores, creating a favourable environment for carnivores – the most-sought after being the Royal Bengal Tiger. Forming a continuum with the Kanha forest, Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book is often attributed to this jungle as well.
