Chhattisgarh, the recently formed state engraved out of Madhya Pradesh, has a discrete geographical and enlightening distinctiveness which is shared by 6 surrounding states, viz., Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Orissa, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh. Chhattisgarh has great proportional benefit in intact human & natural resources. Its natural resources in minerals, energy, forests, water and land are some of the wealthiest in the country.


Its human resources offer a huge complex of eco-specific skills and knowledge. The state proliferates in affluence of cultural heritage, monuments, rock art sites and archaeological antiquities. Nevertheless, many rock art sites have not been suitably discovered so far. Department of Culture & Archaeology of Chhattisgarh Government is boarding on several projects which would bring the civilization and archaeological legacy of the state to the fore in International and National pitch and also ultimately augment the tourism industry.
