Brahmeshwar Temple

Brahmeswar Temple (c. 1050) is an architectural marvel of the matured Orissan temple building skills and style. Exhibiting a bit of affinity with the more ancient Mukteswara Temple in terms of sculptural iconography such as decoration of the Jagmohana (porch) with lion head carvings, the temple also incorporates certain innovative ideas like introduction of a great number of musicians and dancers on the exterior walls, and the use of iron beams in the construction for the very first time. The otherwise lost inscriptions found on the temple told explicit and precise information about the temple.


Gracefully set in the midst of open paddy fields, the Rajarani temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and dates back to eleventh century AD. Much to the amusement of the scholars, the name of the temple is controversial and marks a stray from the established norm of naming a Lord Shiva temple in the history of the region. However, it is unanimously argued that the name has been acquired because of the extensive use of the local sandstone called ‘Rajarani’. The structure’s highlights comprises of a spectacularly ornate duel (tower), in sharp contrast with an extremely plain Jagmohana (porch).
