  • A must visit place in Bhubaneswar. The caves are partly natural and partly man made during the Odia king Kharavela. Note: Be aware of the monkeys.
  • The place is beautiful. You can see the entire city from here. The caves are really spaces and perfect spot for slefies and photographs.👓 The entry ticket is Rs15 per head. Keep in mind, not to enter into the woods as monkeys there are notorious.🐒
  • Awesome place for panoramic vision to Bhubaneswar.one of the ancient and most tourist attracted place in Odisha.it's also Govt. Of Odisha tourism site.the caves are awesome have graffiti in the wall of cave.natural places & very neat & clean place.
  • A historical place illustrates the old culture. Nice place to visit with your family. Beaware of monkeys, they are so naughty.
  • Wonderful cave structures, it has so many small caves. This beautiful structure is at the hill and the scenery from the hill is spectacular but not good for old age peoples as their are high stairs and altitude. Cleanliness is good.
