Shivpuri, an ancient town in Madhya Pradesh derives its name from Lord Shiva. Earlier, Shivpuri was known as Sipri.  Steeped in its royal legacy, Shivpuri was the summer capital of Scindia rulers of Gwalior.  At one point of time, Shivpuri’s dense forests were the hunting grounds of the Mughal emperor Akbar.

In ancient times forests were thick and lush green. But now, wildlife has been declining due to increasing population and cutting of forests.
Shivpuri is famous for Madhav National Park. The park has a varied terrain of forested hills and flat grasslands around the lake. It is very rich in biodiversity. Sakhya Sagar and Madhav Sagar lakes are two main biodiversity support systems in the national park. The Sailing Club situated on Sakhya Sagar at the entrance of the National park is a place of scenic beauty.

Shivpuri is mainly an agricultural district and cultivation is the main occupation of the people. Gram and Arhar are the main pulses grown here. There are four main rivers - the Parwati, Sindh, Kuno and Betwa that passes through the district.
