The imposing edifice of Deogarh Mahal dates back to 1670 AD when Rawat Dwarka Dasji built it as a family residence. Located on the borders of Mewar, Marwar and Merwara, this 17th century structure commands far-reaching views of the Aravalli mountain range.
Today it is hotel and this particular room is called the Sheesh Mahal in the Maharana suite. The baby bengal tiger was photographed in Bannerghatta safari park and sits alone. Tigers are loners, marking their territory to keep intruders at bay. They come together to mate but the male wanders off whilst the female cares for the cubs until they are two years old. Tigers still live in the Aravali hills alongside leopards, jackals and hyenas but a leopard with cubs was recently spotted in the rubble left from mining company extracting black granite and feldspar near Deogarh.
