About Visit Painted Rock Shelter

On the way to Jageshwar Dham from Almora, there is a pre-historic site where one gets a good view of cave paintings on rocks and at rock shelters. This is an excellent spot that must be visited by one and all in Almora. For a history buff and an archaeologist, this rock shelter holds great importance. Although no maintenance can be found, this rock shelter is well-preserved and is located right beside the main road. A small set of pre-historic drawings made with chalk can be seen on the walls of the caves. Travel to the past as you take a look at these paintings and enjoy the striking sights. The paintings are believed to have been drawn during the stone age and are quite a million years old. Get mesmerized as you explore the artistic side of cave dwellers and their imaginations while you observe these paintings.

Pro Tip: Comfortable shoes are preferable for this activity.
