Udayagiri and Khandagiri Caves

Looking onto the Udayagiri caves from Khandagiri, in Bhubaneswar, Orissa. These rock-cut caves were home to Jain monks and date back to the 2nd century BCE. More info on the caves and inscriptions here. Of particular interest is the Hathigumpha inscription.

 

Behind the hill lies the runway of the Bhubaneswar Airport.
