This website has been developed as a resource for teaching as well as for university-based research. This also for Heritage Planners and Administrators to consult in thinking about a proper strategy for conserving the rock art heritage of this country. Our primary aim for constructing, developing and maintaining this website, has been to explain the visual data outputs from our fieldwork, conducted under a Two-Year Research Project "The Documentation and Analysis of the Rock Art of Uttar Pradesh with Special Reference to the Rock Art of Mirzapur District, Uttar Pradesh". This project has been funded by the Indian Council Of Historical Research (ICHR), New Delhi, and the research for it is being carried-out by Faculty and Students, at the Department of History, Faculty of Social Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India.
Hence, this website.
Here is wishing a Happy Viewing to all our Guests!
