Same Day Trip to Bhimbetka


| May 15, 2020

Approximately 45km south of Bhopal and set amid dense deciduous forest are the rock caves of Bhimbetka. As late as 1957 around a thousand of these shelters were discovered, and almost half contain what are now thought of as South Asia's richest collection of prehistoric paintings. The oldest of the paintings are believed to be up to 12,000 years old, while more recent examples date from the medieval period. The site also contains many other archaeological discoveries including tools and weapons. Share:
