Megheswar temple in Bhubaneswar


Megheswar temple1

In Bhubaneswar, most shrines of Lord Siva were built during 7th to 12th Century CE, thus showing the prominence of Shaivitism (a Hindu sect that idolizes Lord Siva) in that era; Shree Shree Megheswar Temple is one among them. This temple with its arched gate, stone engravings on the shrine, wall carvings of graceful dancers and the surrounding greenery compels a visit from religious devotees as well as art lovers and students of architecture.
