Travel Tips for Bhubaneshwar

Map of temples

by Willettsworld

This is a useful map that's located at the northern end of Bindu Sagar at a crossroads where a road heads east towards Parasurameswar Temple and the Mukteswar Complex. It details where the temples are located and the names of them. If you want larger photo's, let me know!

Raja Rani Temple

by Willettsworld

This is the only temple that you have to pay an entrance fee in order to visit as it is an Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) monument. It was built around 1100 A.D. and is surrounded by well groomed gardens which must've been maintained by the rather hefty admission fee.

The name of the temple has been the subject of much debate. The most likely explanation is that the name is related to the lovely red and gold sandstone used in its construction, a stone which is known locally as rajarani. The debate is complicated by the fact that the names of all the Hindu temples in Bhubaneswar dedicated to the God Shiva end in the suffix eswar (for example Parasurameswara, Mukteswara, etc), while those of the non-Shaivite temples are derived from their presiding deities (e.g. Parvati temple). The jagmohana (porch) is extremely plain, and was evidently repaired in 1903 after having fallen down in ruins. The deul (tower), on the other hand, is spectacularly ornate, and is famous for the aesthetic concept of miniature temple spires clustered around the main tower. The sculptural images of the temple are elegant and lively, especially the beautiful female figures which can be seen in amorous dalliance, as well as engaged in such activities as holding children, looking in mirrors, and playing with pet birds.
