Fossil Parks of India
- Shivalik Fossil Park, near Saketi, Himachal Pradesh. The site is notable for its life-size models of the vertebrates that might have roamed the Sivalik Hills 1.5—2.5 million years ago.
- Mandla Plant Fossils National Park, near Dindori, Madhya Pradesh. The park attempts to preserve the fossil remains of a primordial forest that covered the region 40—150 million years ago.
Both parks, as well as numerous fossil displays and models in Indian zoological parks, are part of the Geological Survey's charter program to educate the general public on the Earth's evolutionary history. One of the more comprehensive displays is that of the Natural History Museum of the Nehru Zoological Park, Hyderabad.
