Marvel at a dream set in sandstone at Mukteswara Temple, a landmark complex and a jewel of Odisha architecture. With terraced 10.6 m (35 ft) tall spires, this compact architectural ensemble gives the best of the Kalinga school of temple architecture, heralding a new era. Built in the mid-10th century, this temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is literally covered with carved figures of ascetics in different meditation positions. Exquisitely carved sculptures and arch entrances, diamond shaped latticed windows surrounded by depiction of monkeys adorn the main porch. Walk around the site and feel the time slows down as sunlight begins to change its colors against the masterfully carved sandstone. Make Mukteswara Temple a centerpiece of your Bhubaneswar vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bhubaneswar trip itinerary builder.
