National Park in India: 103 National Parks and 544 Wildlife Sanctuary

Complete List of National Park in India

A National Park is a park in use for conservation purposes. Often it is a reserve of natural, semi-natural, or developed land that a sovereign state declares or owns. Although individual nations designate their national parks differently, there is a common idea: the conservation of ‘wild nature’ for posterity and as a symbol of national pride. An international organization, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and its World Commission on Protected Areas have defined “National Park” as its Category II type of protected areas.
