The Udayagiri Hill is made of caves those were designed for Elephants in a well planned manner. All cells of the hill are of almost same size and maintainance by the Government is very good. Those are very good to travel on holidays with other tourist places nearby like Ranicaves, Dhauli Shanti Stupa etc.
