Bhopal is the capital city of Madhya Pradesh state and a take off point for many exciting places and sights in surrounding areas such as Sanchi Stupa, Bhojpur temples and Bhimbetka Caves which is presently our topic of discussion. Surrounded by the northern fringe of the Vindhyan ranges, Bhimbetka lies 46 km South of Bhopal and is a UNESCO world heritage monument. In this rocky terrain of dense forest and craggy cliffs, over 600 rock shelters belonging to the Neolithic age were recently discovered. Here, in vivid panoramic detail, paintings in over 500 caves depict the life of the pre-historic cave-dwellers making the Bhimbetka group an archaeological treasure, an invaluable chronicle in the history of man. Executed mainly in red and white with the occasional use of green and yellow with themes taken from the everyday events of aeons ago, the scenes usually depict hunting, dancing, music, horse and elephant riders, animal fighting, honey collection, decoration of bodies, disguises and masking and household scenes. Animals such as bisons, tigers, lions, wild boar, elephants, antelopes, dogs, lizards, crocodiles, etc., have been abundantly depicted in some caves. Popular religious and ritual symbols also occur frequently.
