The Rock shelters of Bhimbetka compose an archaeological site and World Heritage Site located in Raisen district in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. The Bhimbetka shelters exhibit the earliest traces of human life in India; a number of analyses suggest that at least some of these shelters were inhabited by man for in excess of 300,000 years.[1] Some of the South Asian Stone Age rock paintings found among the Bhimbetka rock shelters are approximately 32,000 years old.[2] The name Bhimbetka is associated with the historical figure, Bhima, from the epic Mahabharata. The word Bhimbetka is said to derive from Bhimbaithka, meaning sitting place of Bhima, a hero-deity renowned for his immense strength. 22°55′40″N 77°35′00″E / 22.92778°N 77.5833333°E / 22.92778; 77.5833333
