Tigers come from Asia. But Asia is a big place, and they are spread across it. Much of southeast Asia is included in the range of these, the largest of the big cats. Even the islands of Indonesia are home to them. Certainly they are a part of the history of India and adjoining territory. Up in the cold of Siberia north of China we can find the largest members of this breed of cat. Wikipedia has a nice map showing their range, and a link is provided to that and the main article on the tiger. You'll find those links below.

Tigers originated in South and Southeast Asia, although different species can now be found in tropical and grassland climates such as those of South America (in the Amazon Rainforest) and Africa. Yet, the highest concentration of any specific tiger species is still most commonly found in parts of Southern Asia that contain grassland, wet, tropical, swamp, or marsh climates.
They come from India and parts of southeast Asia. Tigers that live in cold northern areas are usually bigger and heavier than those that live in tropical habitats. In captivity, a tiger can live in both tropical and temperate forests as well as in swamps. They are never found far from water.

Tigers live alone, except for mothers and their young. A male and female tiger come together to mate, and then go their separate ways. And The scientific name for the tiger is Panthera tigris. There are five subspecies of tiger: Bengal, South China, Indochinese, Sumatran, and Siberian. Three subspecies of tiger Caspian, Bali, and Javan are extinct
