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.

Beautiful caves. Well preserved and have various sculptures. I would suggest reading up the history of the place before visiting or take a guide because that enhances the experience.

Scenic, Peaceful, Sublime. Come to this place for relaxing your soul. Spend some time in the lap of History.. This is a part of my proud Oriya culture.
Historical place.Great architecture! Well maintained place.lots of stairs to go to the top.From The top can see the city below.nice view.
I didn't have much time to enjoy this place, but I think it is a pretty good one. Not so high, but have to use about 50 stairs I think. Yea, obviously u have to at least this. And most importantly good for visiting this place in winter, but if you have to go in any other season, then I think it would be wise to go early in the morning (before 11) or after 4pm
