Will Madhya Pradesh’s Bagh become India’s first UNESCO Global Geopark?
Bagh, located in Madhya Pradesh’s Dhar district, is popularly known for the Bagh Caves, dating back to the late 4th to 6th century. These caves are popular among history lovers because of the Buddhist murals in its rock-cut chambers.
There’s something older in Bagh, much older than the Buddhist caves. We are talking about the fossils of dinosaurs, prehistoric sharks and giant gymnosperms to name a few. The quiet town of Bagh, as it turned out, is a treasure trove of fossils as old as 100.5 – 60 million years old. Geologists and palaeontologists are working together to make a dossier for UNESCO for the tag of a global geopark. This is done to protect the site, increase tourism, involve the local communities and raise awareness to protect the area’s history of millions of years.
