Asm: কাজিৰঙা kājirāṅgā

 ‘Kazi’s Village’  National Park, Assam

From Kbi: kaji/kazi,  female personal name; and rang/rong, ‘village’.

Archaeological evidence suggests the Karbi people once ruled here. There are a number of derivations which are based on personal names and myths, which suggests kazi is a bit of a brick wall.

The Kaziranga National Park is located in 430 sq km of elephant grass meadows, lagoons, swampland and tropical forests.

It hosts more than 2,000 one-horned Indian rhinos, nearly 70% of the global population.
