Ganesh Gumpha

Ganesh Gumpha, one of the notable caves of the Udayagiri Caves and Khandagiri Caves, is located at Bhubaneswar in Orissa.

This single storied cave with attached balcony has lavishly sculpted images of elephant on both sides of the wall. Another enchanting carving in this cave shows the story of Sita's capture. The decorations and moral teachings carved on the balcony walls are remarkable. From here, the path leads to the ledge at the top of Udaigiri hill, where one can see commanding views and the ruins of the old chaitya hall.
