About Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka

Get an insight into the ancient times with the Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka. These caves contain more than 700 rock shelters, of which as many as 400 have rock paintings that speak of the ancient arts. The cave even has a small inscription of the Maurya/Sunga period, along with small stupas found around the premises. An Auditorium Rock Shelter, Zoo Rock and Boar Rock are part of this Bhimbetka cluster, and together they make for an interesting tourist destination. The most fascinating part here is the small, cup-like depressions at the end of the Auditorium Rock Shelter considered nearly 100000 years. Near the end of this tunnel, a cluster of paintings depicting a hunter, deer, tiger cattle, and peacock are also seen. Further ahead is the Zoo Rock Shelter, which is the most densely painted rock shelter with paintings spanning from the Mesolithic age to the medieval age. The Boar Rock is the last rock shelters accessible to tourists and depicts a mythical boar with horns being chased by a tiny human being.
