There are more than 60 big and small images of Mother Goddess, birds and animals, found in a single location of around 20,000 square feet, considered one of the biggest such concentration anywhere in the country, Satish Lalit, leader of an expedition team which made the discovery last May, said.
Lalit explained that the manner in which the rocks have been carved indicate that they belong to the Neolithic era which flourished in southern Asia between 4,000-7,000 BC.
"The most striking carving is of a 15-foot tall Mother Goddess with all the internationally known symbols indicating her status. During that era, women were accorded a very high social status, were revered and worshipped by human tribes," he added.
