About Rajarani Temple

Set amidst sprawling greenery, the 11th century Rajarani Temple in Bhubaneshwar is well-known for its sculpted formations and the consecutive tiers of protrusions rising to form its 18-meter tower. Rajarani got its name from the local yellowish sandstone used to build it and is an epitome of grace and elegance. The temple is remarkable for its sculptural excellence, exuberant architectural features, a profusion of ornaments and multiple scroll work. The most striking feature of Raja Rani temple is the 'Guardians of the Eight Directions' that project from the temple base in the eight directions. The eight guardians are Indra, Agni, Yama, Nirriti, Varuna, Vayu, Kubera, and Ishana. Beautifully dressed, they stand on lotuses, with their mounts below. The tall and slender ‘nayikas,' which are carved in high relief on the walls is another striking feature of the Raja Rani Temple.
