These amazing caves must have been so beautiful and yet so distant and remote for the monks who spent time here. One can see how richly they were once decorated before years of wind and monsoon rain washed all but the most sheltered areas smooth....More

Udayagiri and Khandagiri are located on two small hills adjacent to each other. These caves are believed to be of historical significance and carved out as residences for monks who were followers of Jainism. While Khandagiri leaves a lot to be desired with tourists like...More

Udayagiri and Khandagiri are right opposite to each other. Plan at least 90 minutes to visit and enjoy these 2 places. Structures that are around 2000 yeas old will surprise you. Enough photo opportunities are available.

Very very poorly maintained. Even the neighboring Udayagiri is better maintained than this. we could see more graffiti instead of caves. Would even suggest missing it if not for the close proximity to Udayagiri. ASI is not present anywhere to enforce any sort of discipline...More

One would have thought that caves from the first century AD would be kept safe from graffiti. But no. Not only graffiti, the place is dirty. It needs serious crowd control and cleaning services. There is much to see for the history fan. But the...More
