Prehistoric Rock Carvings – Mizoram

A few photos of pre-historic rocks seen in Fawlkun village in Mizoram. This village is literally in the middle of nowhere – the nearest town Aizawl is about 18 km or an hour away.

But these rocks made the journey worthwhile.

There is not much information available about these though. But here are some pictures
