You guessed it right (obviously the name of the Geological “Age” gave it away)! Yeah, this place is in Meghalaya, that is known for caving.
One of the longest caves in the Indian subcontinent that was the first cave explored by a British official in 1844 – Mawmluh Cave in Sohra (locally known as Krem Mawmluh), has been chosen as one of the “First 100 IUGS Geological Sites”.
Meghalaya Chief Minister, Conrad K. Sangma, who expressed his joy at the recognition, tweeted “IUSG 60th Anniversary Event in Zumaia, Basque Coast UNESCO Global Geopark (Spain) will declare the First 100 IUSG Geological Heritage Sites selected from 181 candidate sites from 56 countries”.
For those unaware of the “Meghalayan Age” relation, this is the reason:
We might just have to retrace our step backwards a few million years! We all are aware of the Jurassic Period (the movie made sure of that!). The mass extinction of dinosaurs helped geologists to determine the geologic scale of our beautiful planet. Since geology is the study of the sediments that are left behind, generation after generation, for millions and billions of years, when something as big as an extinction event happens, the rock strata become the witness!
