Dhauli, OrissaSituated 7-km west of Bhubaneswar , the strong Jain influence is exemplified in the twin hill monuments of Khandagiri and Udaygiri, where caves were cut from rocks seem to form a honeycomb. The 18 caves of Udaygiri caves include the famous Rani-gumpha or Queen's Cave and Hati-gumpha or the Elephant's Cave. Another must visit are the 13 rock-cut edicts, which perpetuate the Buddhist cult of gentleness, peace and justice, by a remorseful ruler Ashoka, to his administrators.
