If you wish to travel back into the pre-historic era, an excursion to the Bhimbetka Rock Shelters is perfect. Hemmed in by the northern fringe of the Vindhya ranges, Bhimbetka is an archaeological treasure house, South of Bhopal. The rocky terrain of dense forest and craggy cliffs has over 600 shelters belonging to the Neolithic Age. Many from these are vividly and panoramically painted – depicting the lives of pre-historic cave dwellers. This invaluable chronicle of the history of humans should not be missed. You can enjoy the paintings depicting everyday events of our ancestors’ lives– scenes of hunting, dancing, horse and elephant riding, household scenes, honey collection, animal fighting scenes, etc., decorate the walls.
