past of tiger The Bengal tiger has been India's national symbol since about 2500 BCE when it was displayed on the Pashupati seal of the Indus Valley Civilization (2900BC-1900BC).Later the animal became the royal symbol of the Chola Empire from 300 CE to 1279 CE and is now designated as the official animal of India.Tipu Sultan, who ruled the Mysore state in late 18th century (India), was also a great admirer of tiger.In modern India too it has been given place of pride by Reserve Bank of India, which has chosen it as its emblem. Even the currency notes are carrying its portrait.
presentThe latest tiger census figures show that Karnataka has the highest number of tigers in the age group of 1.5 years and more.The state has 408 tigers in that age group followed by 340 in Uttarakhand, 308 in Madhya Pradesh, 229 in Tamil Nadu, 190 in Maharashtra, 167 in Assam, 136 in Kerala and 117 in Uttar Pradesh.
