About Mukteshvara Temple

Known as the “Gem of Orissan Architecture,” the Mukteshwar Temple in Bhubaneshwar is a specimen of the skills of artisans in the past. The temple is a dream realized in sandstone and is said to be a structure where architecture and sculpture work in beautiful synchronization with one another. The temple is devoted to Lord Shiva (Mukteshwar - Lord who gives freedom through Yoga), and thus the entire temple is embossed with figures in different poses of meditation.  The temple structure represents the transition point between the early and later phases of the Kalinga School of Temple Architecture. While the temple spire rises only to the height of 35 feet, the abundance of sculptural work makes it more fascinating. The complex comprises several small shrines that have several lingams of Lord Shiva. The main attraction of the temple is its exquisitely carved 'Torana' (arched doorway). Another interesting feature here is the well ‘Marichi Kund,' which is believed to cure infertility in women.  Its architecture splendor and religious importance make it a must-visit location.
