Amazing artwork on temple wall

One of the high rated hindu temple, but over crowded, you won't find any peace, outside lake is so damn dirty.

A very neat & clean surrounding, with the age old "Lingaraj or Lord Shiva" in the central temple. As the saying goes," at the end of Kaliyug era, the ox or Baasua Balada, will get up and eat the sapling tree and a new era would start."

This is the oldest temple in Bhubaneswar. It's located in the old city part of Bhubaneswar city. There is a Shiva Linga in the Garbha Griha of the temple. The temple premises is vast and several miniatures temples are present across the complex. Well maintained temple. Divinity is in the air here.

Don't visit during day time. Early morning visit would be nice. Don't fall in trap with the priests for money. Give what you are willing to and not what they are asking.

Bhubneshwar is the city of Temples. But among thousands of temple Lingraj Temple is the main temple and a must visit. Will take an hour for you to complete it in normal days.

Lingaraj Temple is a must visit Temple in Bhubaneswar. It's famous for the Raja Lingam (hence known as Lingaraj) Photography and usage of Mobiles are Prohibited inside. The Temple was clean and good. But be aware of the pandas who will loot your money in the name of short Puja/offering.
