Bhimbetka: India’s Oldest Art Gallery
Large imposing sandstone boulders shaped by the wind, water and elements atop a range of hills, which are the oldest part of the Indian subcontinent - the Vindhyachal ranges. Walk through the narrow path that leads you to the entrance - the cave known as the ‘Auditorium’- of Bhimbetka, around 45 km from Bhopal, and you will not be surprised that this is where some of the earliest humans in India lived, hunted and prayed.
There is something other-worldly about India’s oldest gallery of prehistoric art, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Over here, you will find, in vivid colour, the story of man and how life changed for him, over thousands of years.
