The Gir National Park which is also known as the Sasan Gir is a national park that is located in the state of Gujarat. This wildlife sanctuary first came into prominence in the year 1965. This is the only remaining place where one can see pure bred Asiatic lions and they are situated in one of most protected areas of the continent. The national park and its forests are also home to a wide variety of flora and fauna and visiting it is an interesting experience. The lions of Sassan Gir almost went into extinction due to hunting and the first preservation steps were taken by the Nawab of Junagadh.

There are many water holes where the animals congregate to drink and during the summer season one can see around 300 of them across the length and breadth of the national park. The park is home to around 2375 different species of fauna including mammals, insects, reptiles and birds. Some of the animals that can be seen in the park are lions, leopards, Chinkaras, antelopes, sloth bears, hyenas, jungle cats and the ever elusive rusty spotted cats.

There are also many species of birds such as crested eagles, black headed orioles, bush quails and many other species.
