The sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO) seem to be not a modern phenomenon. Throughout history, many ancient paintings, cave paintings, and scriptures reported recorded UFO sightings in various parts of the world, have been raising questions about life on other planets and whether extraterrestrials have visited Earth. The discovery of the abundance of ancient rock paintings, depicting UFOs and extra-terrestrials, in the cave located in central India surprised archeologists.
In 2014, the Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture attempted to take the help of NASA and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to carry out the research on a set of ancient rock paintings found inside caves near the town of Charama in the Kanker district, in the tribal Bastar region, Chattisgarh (India).
Archaeologist JR Bhagat suggested that these paintings depicted aliens as shown in many mainstream movies and claimed that they dated back some 10,000 years. He shared a belief that ancient humans might have made a contact with otherworldly beings.

According to Bhagat, the color of the paintings was barely faded as they were drawn using mineral-based pigments. Besides, the outlandish carved figures with missing noses and mouths were seen holding weapon-like objects. Additionally, in other paintings, the figures were shown wearing spacesuits. “The fan-like antenna and three legs of vehicle’s stand clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft,” he stated.
“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,” he added.
The region where the rock paintings were discovered (presently Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh) was the place of pre-agrarian human settlement even before the great tectonic plate movement. That is why many pre-historic cave paintings have been found here.
The region, known as “Bhimbetka rock shelters” in central India, is famous for ancient rock arts that span the Paleolithic and Mesolithic periods, as well as the historic period. They are considered to be the oldest petroglyphs in the world, some of them similar to aboriginal rock art in Australia and the paleolithic Lascaux cave paintings in France. It exhibits the earliest traces of human life in India and evidence of the Stone Age starting at the site in Acheulian times.
In 1982, Dr. Arun Sonakia, a fossil hunter, discovered the “Narmada Man,” a half-million-year-old prehistoric human skull in the Hathnora village of Madhya Pradesh. There are possibilities that these paintings were drawn by those ancient humans, according to Sonakia. Narmada Man belongs to the category of Homo erectus, preceding Homo sapiens, the modern human species.
The Statesman explained: “On enlargement, two objects that look like hats floating in mid-air can be noticed, as also one of them appears to have portholes on it. Indian Vedic texts are full of descriptions of Vimanas. The Ramayana describes Vimanas as a double-decked, circular or cylindrical aircraft with portholes and a dome. It flew with “the speed of the wind” and made a melodious sound.”
Like the above-mentioned 10,000-year-old rock paintings, there are certainly other pre-historic rock paintings (as shown below), which bear a similarity to images painted centuries later in the 16th century Summer’s Triumph Tapestry, and which are also tied in closely with modern-day UFO accounts. Another intrigued account of cave paintings that depicts ancient aliens are the Aboriginal cave paintings of the “Wandjina” spirits.
The fact that an intelligent race of alien civilization could visit Earth in the distant past cannot be denied. A joint report on the issue of “Relationship with Inhabitants of Celestial Bodies” by Robert Oppenheimer and Albert Einstein deals with such issues as: where extra-terrestrials may come from, what the law says about it, what we should do in the event of colonization, and/or integration of people, and why they are here.
The document uses the phrase “Extra-terrestrial Biological Entities” (EBEs) which reflects the possibility of life on other planets in a very logical and coherent way. It also shows how serious this topic is, as top scientists approached the subject in an academic way.
