Mukteswara Temple: An Epitome of Art & Architecture

About the walk

The  Mukteswara temple was built during the 10th century CE. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Shiva worshipped as Lord Mukteswara or Lord of spiritual freedom. The temple has been accounted for as a “miniature gem” by historians for its intricate and well-proportioned craftsmanship. The signature of the temple is the Torana or the arched gate which is one of the most photographed architectural structure in India if not the world. The exquisitely carved pillars of the arched gate leaves tourists and visitors awestruck with its matchless precision and skill.  

This walk also includes Parshurameswara temple, Lingaraj Temple, Baital Temple and Botanical Garden located in Bindusagar water reservoir. All these temples are located within 1.5 km radius of Old Town, Bhubaneswar.
