a UNESCO heritage site easily accessible from bhopal by road. A place full of wall paintings crafted hundred of years ago will surly surprise you. The craftings are well preserved and every sign has its own meaning. the caves are deep and has their special effects. this place is worth to visit.

We visited the rock shelters of Bhimbetka on our way to Satpura . Initially debating whether to avoid altogether. But now that we did visit the place, it was worth every minute spend there. Good to hire a knowledgeable guide to give a perspective of the place . Well maintained. Require couple of hours to visit all the rock paintings.... More

If you love art and history at the same time, then Bhimbetka is one of the best places out of them having "chitrakari" (rock painting) as old as 30,000 years.
