A few km west of Bhubaneswar city centre are two hills, facing each other, honeycombed with caves, most of which are numbered. The Khandagiri Caves are reached via a steep path which divides halfway up the hill. To the right is Ananta Cave with its carved figures of elephants, and women which are worth a visit.
