Awesome view and very well maintained.This place is around 90 Kms from Visakhapatnam.A walk around the caves provides an impressive view of the mountainous area which is rich in flora and fauna. There is a twilight zone in the caves with limited light penetration which looks awesome

This is place is a scenic beauty especially the road upto there. Apart from it the carving out of the cave in itself is very unique given the size of the caves. One will simply adore this place
