About Pre Historic Painted Rock Shelter

Adding a new dimension to the prehistory of the region, Painted Rock Shelters in Almora are a small set of cave rocks where prehistoric chalk drawings can be seen on the cave shelter walls. You will find these painted rock shelters in plenty in a dozen odd sites in Almora. The rock paintings have been beautifully sketched with geometrical patterns, schematic alignments of depressions along with faunal and floral patterns. The pictures are mostly drawn in red and white and their variants. These paintings are easily visible from the roadside. Such epic representations give new insight into of archaic human behavior. By seeing these engravings, you can get a clear idea of how deep and vast the artists’ imagination would have been. The fact that all these paintings have been done millions of years back reminds us that creativity has been an integral part of the human race. Indeed, it’s a great place to familiarize yourself with ways of our ancestors and feel closer to our roots.
