This temple dates back to the 7th Century A.D. It was awesome to see beautiful, detailed carvings. The surroundings were clean and peaceful. There are no guides available on site. Hire a guide for the day and visit several places or do a package to best appreciate the history and architecture of Odishan temples.

This complex that houses the Mukteshwar and the Parashurameswar is a must-do in Bhubaneswar. The splendid stone thoran in front of the Mukteswar temple, speaks poetry.. Definitely one of a kind. Can spend an hour there.

No words in my dictionary to explain or write review. Marvellous, fantastic, magnanimous,Land of Beauty, Art, Architecture has simply flown. People have showered their entire strength and dreams on every architecture. Stones are simply dancing and singing, waving their style and showering the history of great Kings and EMperors. They are explaining the contribution and dedication of dynasties.
