Raisen , Madhya Pradesh

IN the heart of India is Madhya Pradesh and in the very heart of Madhya Pradesh you will find a treasure that can only hide in hearts for its precious beauty- the Bhimbetka caves. These are caves with myriad colours depicting so many sceneries that they will fill your mind and heart with the wonder of things that were bygone. Bhimbetka caves hide the beauty and artistry of things that we cannot even fathom. This is a place every person needs to go to in order to understabd how incredible India actually is. Executed mainly in red and white with the occasional use of green and yellow, with themes taken from the every day events of aeons ago, the scenes usually depict hunting, dancing, music, horse and elephant riders, animals fighting, honey collection, decoration of bodies, disguises, masking and household scenes. Animals such as bisons, tigers, lions, wild boars, elephants, antelopes, dogs, lizards, crocodiles, etc. have been abundantly depicted in some caves. Popular religious and ritual symbols also occur frequently. A world heritage site with just cause, these are proofs of a time that we did not even know existed. These are the proof of the first exixtance of life ever in India and in glorious colours too. The rock shelters in Bhimbetla number more than 250 and had eventually evolved into some of the most effective shelters to be found by the aboriginals. Today they are being arduously preserved as they are the only tangible link to the very first existence of mankind itself. They are how we know what we were and based on that very fact we shape our future. These are some caves you surely need to explore.
