Reasons to Visit
  • The Bhimbetka rock shelters are an archaeological World Heritage site located at 45 kms from Bhopal. The Bhimbetka shelters exhibit the earliest traces of human life in India; a number of analyses suggest that at least some of these shelters were inhabited by man for in excess of 100,000 years.
  • Some of the Stone Age rock paintings found among the Bhimbetka rock shelters are approximately 30,000 years old.
Know It
  • The entire area is covered by thick vegetation, has abundant natural resources in its perennial water supplies, natural shelters, rich forest flora and fauna, and bears a significant resemblance to similar rock art sites such as Kakadu National Park in Australia, the cave paintings of the Bushmen in Kalahari Desert, and the Upper Paleolithic Lascaux cave paintings in France.
