Temple was good and the structure was as same as Puri Jagannath Swamy Temple. We can see more small Shiva temples in side this temple(30+) and the main god Lingaraja swamy (shiva ling) was very big, In this temple cell phone and cameras are not allowed. parking was very near to temple.

This temple is more than 1100 years and the main deity is considered Harihara... Half Shiva and half Vishnu. This is Swampu deity and considered the Raja of all Jyotirlingas and hence called Linga raj.

Lingaraj temple of Bhubaneswar is one of the important' attraction .Centuries old temple has historic background. Here shivali nga and Vishnu both in one place. This is very rare . Devotees are coming different places. Bhubaneswar is city of Ishwar and he is king of city.. many temple s are here with beautiful artistic architecture.
