How to reach Udayagiri caves :

Udayagiri is about 4 km from the town of Vidisha and 13 km from the World heritage monument of Great Sanchi Stupa.

By Flight: Nearest airport is at Bhopal hardly 45 km from Vidisha so you can book a taxi to for Udaygiri cave and Sanchi both.

By Train: Maximum train on this route have stoppage at Vidisha. from station you can hire a auto just for Rs. 300/- for covering Udaygiri cave and Sanchi. Two hour is enough to explore Udaygiri caves.

By Bus: Regular buses are there from Bhopal to Vidisha and it is about 1 hr journey.

Udayagiri has a series of rock-shelters, ruined buildings, inscriptions, water systems and fortifications. The complex consists of twenty caves, mostly belong to Hinduism. The site have a unique sculpture of God Vishnu in Varha Avtar.

Moreover, as I find this site need proper maintenance and somebody should be there to guide. Only your Auto or Cab driver tell you storied about these ruins.

Note:  There are a number of places in India with the same name, the most notable being the mountain called Udayagiri at Rajgir in Bihar and the Udayagiri and Khandagiri Caves in Odisha.
