The objective of this study has been to recover the fifth century cave-temple site of Udayagiri. Unlike the previous studies that have focused on iconography, epigraphy, architecture, rock paintings and pictoglyphs as independent subjects, I have adopted a holistic approach. The aim was to understand the relationship of the above mentioned elements which share and constitute this sacred landscape. My study has shown that the development of this site was undertaken in one campaign under the patronage of the mighty Gupta king Candragupta Vikramaditya II who was accompanied by his minister Virasena. This campaign was religious in its nature, political in its objective and astronomical in its application.
