Things to see and do in Sultan Battery
What kind of people were our ancestors? What kind of lives did they lead? Visit the Edakkal caves in the Ambukuthi Hills in north Kerala, which are considered to be one of the earliest centres of human habitation.
Inside the cave you will find ancient stone scripts, pictorial wall inscriptions of human and animal figures with peculiar headdresses, the swastik form, symbols and cave drawings of human figures, wheels, bows, knives and natural flora.
Similar cave drawings, considered to be 7000 years old, are found only in Stiriya in the European Alps and a few rocky places in Africa.
