There are so many caves are present which are made during ancient times for meditation by cutting the big stones of Udaygiri hills.After taking the ticket from the counter one can enter to see it.Here so many Langoors (monkeys) are present which entertains the visitors.Akhandgiri hill is situated besides this hill.

Though this place is famous but in reality there is nothing to appreciate. There are some small rooms like caves, no painting, no art, nothing. Only front open three walls with roof above in very small hill.

A must visit for every Indian, caves represent the long forgotten time when the culture of Indian subcontinent was taking its roots in this land.
