  • Nice place for tourists. Has a historical significance and is well maintained. One can find a lot of monkeys but they are kind of fun to watch too. For anyone who likes hills, it's a gud place to hangout l.
  • For 15rs per head you really gonna enjoy the place. Beautiful garden and clean place. Well maintained but little bit more work is required.
  • Good tourist place, recommended to go during winters. When you reach on top you get to see beautiful view of city. So greenery everywhere. Lovers and couples misuse this place.
  • The place that tells a lot of things about the ancient Kalinga and it's most powerful ruler Kharavela. The caves were very meticulously made thousands of years ago. The view of the temple city is astounding from the top of this place.
  • The caves are good piece of history, needs to be looked after more, litter all over the caves. If you gonna pay an entry fee then they should take extra care and maintain the caves n surroundings.
