Lingaraja Temple

Also known as 'time quintessence of Orissan architecture', the temple of the great Lingaraja is a graceful epitome of fully matured Orissan temple architecture dating back to the eleventh century. The 55-meter high temple dominates the Bhubaneswar skyline up to a distance of 15 km radius and exudes glory of the presiding deity Svayambhu linga, which is considered to be a 'hari-hara' linga, that is, half Shiva, half Vishnu. The exemplary temple includes Natamandira (hall of dance) and Bhog-mandapa (hall of offerings), besides housing 150 subsidiary shrines within its complex.


Also known as "miniature gem of Orissan architecture" and “harbinger of the new culture”, the elegant Mukteswara temple is a small archaic Orissan architectural marvel dating back to c. AD 950. The temple marks the transition point between the early and later phases of the Kalinga School of temple architecture. The builder has successfully combined many elements of the old with new designs and conceptions. Many of the innovations took root, and became essential features of all later temples.
