Synopsis by Mark Deming
Centuries ago, the Bandhavgarh plateau in Central India was a seat of power in that great nation, where mighty maharajas presided over their domain. Today, the temples and the palaces they called home are ruins, but another sort of royalty still reigns over Bandhavgarh -- the Bengal Tiger, whose magnificent beauty is matched by his strength and cunning. The Living Edens: Temple of the Tigers is a documentary produced for PBS which examines the fabled history of Bandhavgarh and its tigers, as well as the temples as they exist today, where one Hindu holy man still lives, playing host to spiritual pilgrims and living at peace with the tigers and other local wildlife.
