Treasures from Ancient India
How many of you have been spell-bound by the movie Jurassic Park ? Well guess what !! We have a Jurassic park of our own in India….
A small town called Balasinor in Gujarat, is home to the one of the largest dinosaur fossils sites in the world. There’s a fossilized dinosaur nesting ground and a prehistoric burial ground, but you don’t know about it because no one is bothered to set it up as a UNESCO Geo Park.
Paleontologists believe that at least seven species of dinosaur lived here and researchers have uncovered fossils of about 10,000 dinosaur eggs, making Raiyoli the third largest hatchery in the world. In 2003 they also discovered a new species here, which belonged to the Tyrannosaurus Rex family. It was given the name Rajasaurus narmandensis, meaning princely reptile from the Narmada.
The site was discovered accidentally in 1981 when geologists were conducting a mineral survey of the area. Since then,the finds have attracted scientists and tourists from around the world.
At the site you can see part of a limb embedded in a rock, supposed fossilized remains of skin and other bones, fossilized egg rings and even a real dinosaur egg fossil.It is the only site in the world where tourists can actually touch the dinosaur remains, and hold a 65 million year old egg fossil in their hands.
The fossils were discovered two decades ago, yet they have not received due importance from state officials and most Indians do not even know of the existence of the site.
It is a treasure undiscovered !
