Udaygiri Caves - Review

Travelers who visit Sanchi also visit the famous Udaygiri caves for a pure indulgence in ancient art and architecture. A stroll through these caves will introduce you to the local art that finds a strong presence even in today’s world. These caves were established by ChandraguptVikramaditya, after defeating Shak's' in the 4th and 5th Century A.D. Today, they symbolise the unique identity of Gupta art and architecture. Rich in artistic expression, they offer you an insight into what constituted art in ancient India. The beautifully moulded capitals, the design of the entrance gateway and the architrave work as a string course around the structure making it look appealing as well as intriguing.

You can have best time in evening as you can have sunset view there. This place is also good to have photo shoots. You have to took your own food there.

  • Most of the caves are closed and not open for tourists. No guide is available to explain the importance of this place. You have to go through Google and other sources to know about this place.

  • The place is nice for trekking but certainly has not been maintained well. A good place to visit if you are interested in history. Not the best place to go for outing though!

  • Udaigiri caves is a good place to visit if you went there to see sanchi stupa you should come here also. During summer it's not good option to visit because only you will found hot rocks here. Other than summer it would be good option to visit. You have to take so much time here for hanging here. I had enjoyed a lot a must visit place to everyone.

  • 2 of the cave remains are worth visiting, one containing the lord Vishnu sculpture and another one containing the Shivling.
