Ancient Remains on both Udaigiri & Khandagiri Hill


Ancient Remains on both Udaigiri & Khandagiri Hill | 20 Onwards

Located in the vicinity of Bhubaneswar town are the twin hills Udayagiri and Khandagiri.  A representative of the earliest groups of Jaina rock-cut architecture, Udayagiri and Khandagiri cave, are one of major sites in the field of architecture, art and religion.
The hills are honeycombed with excavated rock-cut caves, essentially meant for the dwelling retreats of the Jaina recluses. On the basis of inscriptional evidences, these caves were first excavated by king Kharavela of Chedi dynasty and his successors who were devout Jainas during the first century B.C. Meant for the residence of Jaina ascetics noted for their self mortification, the caves provide a little amenities. Most of the caves consist of a row of cells open either directly to the verandah or to the open space in front. These are essentially dormitories, an inference substantiated by a sloping rise of the floor to serve the purpose of a pillow.
