Briefly translated from Gujarati

This is first time reported that lions have moved so near to Junagasdh city. Bhavnath Taleti (Valley of Girnar Mountain) is just one Kilometer from the busting city of Junagadh. Girnar forest, just declared as 192 sq km sanctuary area,  is also adjoining Junagadh city.

Two days before when tourist were returning to the city, for many hours they show three lions near Gayatri temple and Vagheshwar temple. Last week morning walkers also confirmed having seen these lions near Jogania hill and Damodar Kund.

Range Forest Officer (Girnar Range) Shree S K Jadeja informed that about 36 lions are residing in Girnar WLS. But they are more staying in Jambudi – Patran area. Forest staff is appending people not to gather to see lions and disturbed them. Due to mating season, disturbed animals may attack also.
