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.

  • It was a hot day... The guides were asking for guiding us... Then we took some pics.... The images on the wall of the temple are something like about romance.... We have enjoyed a lot there...... 
  • Raja Rani temple built for the Rajas and Ranis to visit more as resting place than as place of worship. The carving in the temple captivates you and compels you to spend time gaping at them 
  • The Raja Rani is a beautiful temple with beautiful sculptures between the green of a large garden. You can find many beautiful temples in Bhubaneswar watch for free or you pay for sights which are worth. The entrance here is far too high. In 10 minutes you have seen. Also had to pay extra because of photo.
