Away from the bustling city, these multi-layered Jain rock caves of Udayagiri and Khandagiri showcases the influence of Jainism in the historical period of Orissa. During the reign of Jain King Kharavela, these caves used to be the dwelling retreats for Jain monks. The caves have very low ceiling, barely letting any person to stand erect. The facades of these caves are adorned with auspicious objects related to Jainism that were worshipped during those days. The strange fact about these caves is few of them were naturally created while some were carved by Jain monks.
However, with times most part of this range of caves has turned into ruins. But whatever is left behind, it does depicts the fine architectural work of the ancient India.
Visit these caves before it existence becomes a mere history.

Udayagiri And Khandagiri Caves Reviews & Ratings
This is a beautiful creation of architecture preserving this beautiful historical creation.If you are in Orissa then it is a must visit local spot. This cave is situated within lush greenery and is preserved in a similar way like it's creation. It is just beautiful with adjoining gardens and lovely murals.
Good place to visit. Many monkeys are seen. They have only demand - some banana or other sweet food. They are very cool and cute. Bhubaneswar airport is completely seen from here.
A great place to visit in afternoon and you can have a great view from the top. You can click some good pictures. It gets closed at 6 pm which i think must be extended to 8pm. And there are some "Kinners"who are irritating 😑.
This place is a must visit if you are in Odisha for fun and exploring ancient art and culture. This place tells us about the saga of craftsmanship of our ancestors and their dedication, knowledge and engineering skills. This place have cave temples and has many caves.
Nice place to visit with family and friends. Visited only once and almost four to five years ago. Had a short visit and came, however It was a nice experience. Seen plenty of monkeys around. Hills are of smaller size and climbing was very easy and it was a great experience
