Turtle Rock, Bhimbetka

This particular spot in Bhimbetka is not a cave or painting of a turtle in the cave. This is a simple rock formation in the form of a turtle. This spot is well known as Turtle Rock.

From here we moved back to Bhopal by afternoon. At Bhopal we had our lunch and proceeded to railway station to board a train to Gwalior. From Bhopal to Gwalior is 6 hrs journey by train. We reached Gwalior by night and then checked into hotel.

Distance:
Bhimbetka ---> Bhopal 28kms
Bhopal
---> Gwalior 388 kms

It is certainly necessary to enlarge to see the turtle but then it is quite obvious.

Nature is simply unbelievably wonderful; 2 similar things — one is alive, the other is a stone!

The turtle rock looks fascinating. Thanks for sharing Rajesh.
