The colors used are vegetable colors. The paintings are classified under 7 periods. Period I - These are linear representations, in green and dark red, of huge figures of animals.
Period II - Comparatively small in size showing linear decorations on the body, animals, hunting scenes, communal dances, birds, musical instruments, mothers and children, pregnant women, men carrying dead animals, drinking and burials etc. Period III - These drawings reveal that during this period the cave dwellers of this area were in contact with the agricultural communities of the Malwa plains. Period IV & V - Painted in red, white and yellow depicting riders, religious symbols, tunic-like dresses, scripts, figures of yakshas, tree gods and magical sky chariots. Period VI & VII - The paintings are geometric linear and the colours used were prepared by combining manganese, hematite and wooden coal.

Remains of Raja Bhoja's palace can be seen here.
