Experience Human Past
The history of Chhattisgarh goes back to tens of thousands of years. The anthropologists have found evidences of some of the earliest human habitations in the rocks and caves of this ancient land. Though the mythological history of Chhattisgarh region stretches back to the period of Ramayana and Mahabharata, the earliest clue from the historical era is an Ashokan stone Inscription of 257 BC at Rupnath north of Jabalpur.
According to legends the deep Sal forest regions are Dandakaranya itself, where Lord Rama spent much of his fourteen-year exile from Ayodhya. But regardless to all this, the unbroken history of Chhattisgarh or South Kosala can be traced back only from the 4th century AD. Between the 6th and 12th centuries AD the Sarabhpurias, Panduvanshi, Somvanshi, Kalchuri, and Nagvanshi rulers dominated this region.
