The two rock cut caves named Khola Gumpha are like to those at Khandagiri and Udayagiri hills near Bhubaneswar. There are steps of stair built on stone to enter in to the Gumpha. The inner side of the caves repaired with help of cement and sand in later period.

The inner part of the 1st cave measure 13 feet 1 inches in length, 10 feet 4 inches in breath and 6 feet 10 inches in height. Similarly 2nd cave measured 9 feet 1 inches in length, 8 feet 3 inches in breath and 6 feet 8 inches in height.

The present condition of this caves monuments are not in good condition due to proper care and maintenance. The frontal doorjamb of one of the caves is in collapse condition, which needs preservation.
