Udayagiri and Khandagiri Caves

Udayagiri and Khandagiri jain caves in Bhubaneswar
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.
