HT Mint - Prehistoric Caves in India that Date Back to the Stone Age
Which is the oldest monument or site you have visited? The Taj Mahal? It’s 364 years old. How about the Golden Temple? 413 years old. 445-year-old Macha Pichu? Or the intricate stone temples of Khajuraho? They’re a thousand years old. Let’s go as far back as Harappa and Mohenjodaro, both of which thrived around 5,000 years ago, as did the Egyptian pyramids of Giza. Can you think of any site older than that?
Now, what if I told you that there was a site, in the heart of our country, that was inhabited by humans 100,000 years ago? You read that right: 100,000 years ago. In fact, it exhibits the earliest signs of human life on the Indian Subcontinent—the first signs of humans in India.
