This forest boasts a diverse range of biodiversity, including rare creatures like Jungle Cats, Leopards, Chitals, Sambars, Nilgai, Wild Boars, Langurs, and Monkeys. It is also home to over 200 species of birds, both resident and migratory, attracting birdwatchers with its abundant raptors and waterfowls.

Prehistoric Era (Estimated timeframe: 3,000 years ago):

Junapani stone circles are constructed, forming megalithic structures.

Excavation by J. H. Rivett-Carnac in 1879 reveals iron objects, black and red pottery, and evidence of burial sites characterized by cairns.

Recent Excavation:

Experts discover intact bodies at a burial site of the megalithic era, along with advanced technological artifacts.
A 14-meter diameter burial site with intact human skeletons and various objects is found, indicating an east-west burial orientation.

Another burial site located five meters away reveals an individual buried with a unique iron dagger with a copper hilt, showcasing advanced metal riveting technology.
A degraded skeleton, broken pots, and semi-precious stone beads are discovered in close proximity.

Ongoing Research and Interpretation:

Experts analyze the findings and raise questions about the possibility of warfare, familial relations among the deceased, and the significance of the discovered artifacts.

Two additional burial sites are discovered, one with fractional remains and iron and copper objects, and the other containing scattered bones and animal skeletons.

Future Conservation Efforts:

Plans are made to enclose the burial sites within a glass structure with solar-based air conditioning to ensure optimal preservation.
