Synopsis: Archaeologists also discovered a rock painting that dates back 1,500 years and several man-made water bodies that are estimated to be around 1,800-2,000 years old.

According to reports, archaeologists have discovered several archaeological treasures, including paintings and man-made water bodies, from the Bandhavgarh National Park in Madhya Pradesh. Experts believe that the tiger reserve was part of an old trade route, where traders used rock-cut caves as shelters. One of the major findings was a 1,500-year-old rock painting, along with several man-made water bodies estimated to be around 1,800-2,000 years old.

An ASI official stated that the presence of the water bodies built at a height and used for collecting rainwater suggests the habitation had a modern society, and that the water bodies were renovated around 1,000 years ago. This zone has been in the news before for its archaeological discoveries, including last year when the ASI announced the unearthing of 26 Buddhist caves dating back to the 2nd-5th century BCE after a long summer exploration.
