Wonderful experience. It's really awesome. Human desire to express oneself even before discovery of writing. You need a guide to see these caves or you might miss out on important paintings.

Just 35 km away from Bhopal by road. Full of natural beauty, greenery. You can see the caves and pictures engraved on rocks. You will have a good time there. Roads to walk inside caves are well prepared by MP tourism. You can also hear sound of wild animals from nearby jungle.

Visited this place in Jun with my family. This place is out of world. U get to know about the history n how ppl lived. A word of advice to visitors- plz avoid going with old people as lots of walking is involved and also avoid going in rainy days. No food is available at the location. Restaurants are on... More

This was a hidden gem. I did not know about its existence till one day before the visit. I was amazed at the history behind this place and awed by how history is depicted here. A world heritage site and a must visit while touring MP.

This place is one hour drive from Bhopal. Away from the city and traffic. You need to spend at least an hour to 2 for seeing the Neolithic era carvings and paintings.ASI charges minimum amount . Parking is an issue
