Tryst with the History

The Khandagiri and Udaygiri caves take you back to the ancient time of the Rishis and the Vedas !!! It is situated around 5-6 kms from the city of Bhubaneswar, Odisha and you can reach the places both by private as well as public mode of transport I had been to the place on October 2014 alone. The Udaygiri caves are magnificent and the Khandagiri caves has the famous Jain temple. I would recommend visiti8ng the place during the early owning hours because it gets hotter during the day when the stones tends to heated up and makes it difficult to walk. The caves are situated on two adjacent hills, Udayagiri and Khandagiri. The caves were the resident of the Jain Monks The caves have different names like Hathigumpha, Rani Gumpha, Ganesha Gumpha etc. You can also find different inscriptions in the cave that you can have a look at. There are caves inside caves and they have interconnected tunnels too. Do take out time for Reading the messages and going through each and every cave. The experience is unique. Although the names of the lover's and people etched on the walls might upset you There are monkey's, but they are not the menacing types. You have organized parking area, food stalls etc. Overall a great experience .

Modern day Orissa was established on 1st April, 1936 as a state and this date is celebrated as Utkal Day or Orissa Day. Bhubaneshwar is the capital and the largest city of Orissa.
