Raja Rani Temple, Bhubaneswar

(3.8/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Admire exquisite erotic carvings at Raja Rani Temple, a landmark Hindu temple in Bhubaneswar made from reddish-gold sandstone. With compact but exuberant architectural features, this gem of stonemasonry offers a 360-degree visual treat, serving as a model for many other temples in central India. Built in the 10th century, the temple is locally known as the “love temple” because of its famous images of couples making love. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the structure features an elegant sculpture of the god on the walls of the sanctum. The temple also has a large viewing hall and an 18 m (59 ft) tall tower. Plan your visit to Raja Rani Temple and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Bhubaneswar vacation route planner.
