Bhimbetka Caves and Shelters are situated in the Raisen District, which is quite a few kilometers from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. It has been Glorified by diving in the list of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These Caves and Shelters showcases and provides a Journey to the Beginning of the Mankind to the Travelers or Visitors. Approximately, This place encircles around more than 700 caves, which covers the area of 10 square kilometers. This place is also popular for its antique rock paintings, which describes about the situations and customs of a man from the Stone Age. The place is sited with Unfamiliar Flora & Fauna and Thick Forest Area known as Ratapani Wildlife Sanctuary. This place holds a Key Position in the History of Human Race. The Detection of Bhimbetka Caves is known as the “Extreme Accidental Discovery”. But, One thing is Appreciable that all the world’s extreme inventions (tools, arts and paintings) have results in Paleolithic Age only.
Being a World Heritage Site, Bhimbetka must take a Long Step Ahead because the Position is totally diverse. Most of us didn’t know about this spot and this place is getting anonymous and always remains peaceful and silent most of the time.
Mythical Relations of Bhimbetka:
Bhimbetka, as its name speaks and depict one of the eminent mythical personality “Bhim”. Bhim was one of the influential personality of the epic in the world “Mahabharat”. It is trusted that, when Pandav’s were eliminated from their kindgom, they stayed in this Caves. Bhim was the 2nd in the Pandav’s. Also, This place is believed to be the religious spot for the Buddhists. Nevertheless, The existence of Buddhism is not Manifested or Visible, but it was professed by the Local Tribes.
