In an first of its kind initiative in the country, Indian Railways initiated a project funded by World Wildlife Fund India (WWF-I), and turned the railway station near one of the most famous place in the world to see the wild cats in the their natural habitat, into a living museum of wildlife.
This initiative has turned this small town, Sawai Madhopur’s railway station (home to the world famous Ranthambhore Tiger Sanctuary) into probably the most beautiful railway station in the country, with spectacular murals spread over 7000 square feet of it’s walls and ceilings.
20 Artists lead by local artist ‘Gajanand Singh’ of Ranthambhore School of Art worked on this for over 2 months to finish this project and created this mesmerizing look (see photos below):
In the phase 2 of the same project, similar transformation will be done at the Bharatpur railway station depicting the Ghana Bird Sanctuary, and the coaches of the Kota- Nizamuddin Jan Shatabdi, a train which is frequently used by tourists to Ranthambore, will also be painted.
