History of Kaziranga

According to history, Mary Curzon, wife of the then Viceroy of India Lord Curzon, came to visit Kaziranga in 1904. But he could not see the rhinos in Kaziranga. It was then that Mary took a pledge to conserve the rhinoceros.

At mary’s efforts and at the initiative of Lord Curzon the process of conserving rhinos began in Kaziranga. For that, on June 1, 1905, the proposal for a reserve forest to Kaziranga was adopted. Kaziranga was declared a reserve forest in 1908 and banned from hunting animals. The number of rhinos at that time was only 12.
