- GOND PAINTINGS
Gond paintings can be found on the inner and outer walls of some houses, windows and niches. The main colours used are: red, yellow, blue, black and white. These paintings are based on motifs taken from the oral narratives of Gond tribe. Local deities, scenes connected with forest, agriculture, marriage and other rituals find place in these paintings.
The best thing to do here is take off on a safari into the jungle. Wildlife sightings, especially that of the tigers, is the prime attraction. You can choose between a jeep or elephant safari. The jeep safaris are undertaken early morning or the late afternoon. A forest guide accompanies the visitors.
