Jim Corbett- Hunter turned conservationist who killed 10 man eater tigers was also a writer, painter, photographer and musician. At the age of 10 he killed a leopard and became famous across the region. One of the Man eaters he killed took 437 lives. In the year 1915 this village known as Chhoti Haldwani was constructed on a land of 221 acres bought by him at Rs 1500 to turn this into a model village.
