The Kaziranga National Park owes its name to the mythological Kazi Ronghangpi from the Karbi tribe of Assam. Legend says that Kajir Ronghangpi, daughter of Hok Ronghang, was brought up in the abode of Gods and Goddesses. On attaining divinity and blessed with divine powers, Kajir Ronghangpi came down to earth in search of her natural family. She rebuilt the territory built by her father in and around the present Kaziranga National Park area, bringing with her ‘Kindu’ [Rhinocerous] for tilling. Kajir Ronghangpi however, went back to the abode of Gods leaving the Kindu [Rhinocerous] behind in the territory’.
Although famous for the one-horned Rhinocerous, we happened to see many more animals and birds in Kaziranga. Am sharing some pictures of the same.
