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).
