  • The cave system is very impressive and definitely worth a visit if you're interested in history. But, its very dirty and unkept and little seems to be done to improve/clean the location. Small tip: you can take a small hike around the jungle surrounding the caves.
  • Nice place with a descent scenery of Temple city Bhubaneswar and the Biju Pattanaik Airport. The planes landing and take off can be seen from the top of this place. Monkeys are human friendly, they won't hurt you but will try to snatch your food package if you are standing too close to them. And do not throw any plastic wastes after consuming packed foods or beverages. It is our (tourists or visitors) duty to keep it clean, hygienic and attractive for the good and wellness of everyone.
  • A very beautiful place showing old sculpture of Odisha. Many things printed in stone to showcasing about Kalinga. I love this place very much.
  • Udayagiri caves hold a great part in the history of odisha. Its a must visit place if you are at Bhubaneswar.
  • There is nothing special but you can look many caves on the hill. It's a tourist place near khandagiri which about 5 km away from main city Bhubaneswar.
