Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture plans to seek help from ISRO for research on 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in Charama region in Kanker district in tribal Bastar region of India.

It is located about 130km from Raipur, the caves come under village Chandeli and Gotitola.

In the local villages, few worship the paintings, while others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about "rohela people", who were said to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away people who never returned.

The Discovery[]

According to Times of India, Dr. JR Bhagat found remarkable similarities to recent UFO and Alien Sightings in 10000 years old cave paintings. So much that he asked for research assistance from NASA and ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization).

The paintings are located in caves near the town of Charama in Chhattisgarh, a state in central India. Most of the paintings are the usual drawings of humans, animals and everyday life in 8,000 BCE. But it also stunned many because some depict kangaroos and giraffes (not native to India at all) and fish-like-creatures. Now an archaeologist recently found new paintings of even stranger beings.

“The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn’t have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject,” Bhagat told to the Indian journal.

“(…) the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can’t refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things,” the archaeologist said.

There are several beliefs among locals in these villages. While few worship the paintings, others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about “rohela people” — the small sized ones — who used to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away one or two persons of village who never returned.

It is not the first time we found cave paintings like this, but never until now with such detail. Flying Saucers, Equipment, Space Suits, depictions of abduction are some of the images one can find in Charama.
