Day 210 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – See Pictographs at Mountain River Cave

Mountain River Cave

Mountain River Cave is located in Cudjoe Hill in the parish of St. Catherine and measures 115 feet in length and 35 feet deep. There are some well-preserved pictographs on the wall of the cave, which depict birds, fish, turtles and other figures. The pictographs were made by early settlers in the area and are more than 1,000 years old. It is believed that the Taino people used the cave as a place of worship. When you experience the tranquility and humility that emanates from the spot, you’ll understand why.
