The name Chitwan is a compound of the Sanskrit words चित्त, transcribed “citta” meaning heart and transliterated “vana” meaning jungle or forest. Thus, the meaning of Chitwan is Heart of the Jungle. Chitwan was a thick forest lined by the Tharu God/King Chitrasen Baba. He used to reverence in the bottomless forest and ruled over his state. People trust him as the personification of Lord Vishnu.
The Chitwan National Park (CNP) is a world heritage property and it also contains a Ramsar Site – Beeshazari Tal in its buffer zone. The CNP has a past of over 3 decades in park running and an ironic knowledge in deciding conflicts between the park and the people.
