Brahmeswara Temple in Bhubaneswar – a remarkable specimen of Odishan Architecture


Bhubaneswar is known for its remarkable Shiva temples built between the 7th and 13th centuries AD. There are two architectural phases, the early one (7thto early 10th Century AD) and the later one (10th to 13th centuries AD).

Among the later phases one of the moving specimens is the Brahmeswara Temple built in the early 11th century. The temple features matured Odishan architecture. Built in a panchayatana style (the main temple surrounded by four temples at four corners), the temple consists of a rekha deala (vimana or the main temple housing the deity) and the pidha deula. The temple was built by Kolavati Devi, mother of Somavamsi King Udyatakesari.
