Archaeologists have discovered a modern society dating back 2000 years in Bandhavgarh National Park, located in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.

A recent discovery at Bandhavgarh National Park sheds light on ancient history and provides valuable insights into how society functioned in the region at that time. 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 were found at the sight.

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. What makes it even more interesting is that the painting was found in a rock-cut cave. Usually, they are made in a natural cave or overhang.
