The rock paintings were the earliest forms of Indian paintings. There are innumerable caves which still exhibit paintings drawn in the pre historic period.

As Drishti said, rock paintings are one of the earliest forms of paintings in India. The history of rock art began around 30 000 BCE in the caves of Central India.

The finest examples of cave paintings in India are that of Ajanta and Ellora. The Ajanta cave paintings revolve around the life and teachings of Lord Buddha. The Ellora cave paintings were painted in two different series. The first series revolve around Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi and the second series revolve around Shaiva holy men Apsaras etc.

Cave paintings are painted creations found on cave walls and roofs and particularly those of ancient inception which go back to exactly 40 000 years back in both Asia and Europe. The careful reason for the Paleolithic hole sketches is not known.
