Rock Art of Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh

About Us


This website has been developed as a resource for Teaching as well as for University based Research, as well as for Heritage Planners and Administrators to consult while devising or planning 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 archive and to explain the visual data outputs of our fieldwork 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 Research 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!
