Bhimetka is a UNESCO World Heritage site,and rightly so,for it belongs to the entire world.It is the oldest relic of prehistoric times,though the works of art depicted here are visible in folk art even today.
The caves are basically shelters where early man lived(100000 years ago!),various forms of caves hidden in the forest, and revealed to us only in 1957-58 by Prof Wakankar.60km from Bhopal,the caves and the figures painted on the rocks therein by the inmates give a sneak peek into the creative innocence of early man.We see wild animals in profile,domesticated animals,warriors and even images of fun and frolic.
Worlds can describe the experience of Bhimbetka.Go and live it yourself.You'll come back enriched.What we have read in ancient history hadn't even happened when this art gallery was thriving.
best time to visit is the rainy season,when the hills are painted in natural green.Carry a good pair of walking shoes so that you are surefooted,and Betwa is in full spate.More
