From the century-old structures to the far stretched pristine coastline – Odisha, Land of Temples entices vacationers. Often known as the land of temples, Odisha, one of the prominent East Indian states attracts pilgrims from across the country and the world.

Odisha, Land of Temples and The Goa of East

Though the Jagannath Temple at Puri is one of the finest built edifices in the state and popular to be a Dham as denoted by Shri Adi Shankaracharya, there are several other abodes of the almighty created by the Kalinga ruler across the state during their reign.

The temple of Lingaraja, Rajarani, Konark Sun temple, Paschimeswara, Jaleshwara Shiva and many more engross visitors till date.



Puri Jagannath Temple—

Built within the 11-12th centuries- the magnificent stone temple of Puri houses the triad deities- Jagannath, Subhadra, Balabhadra, and also Sudarshana, built from wood are consecrated on the Ratnavedi Throne placed at the Sanctum Sanctorum. A fusion of Dravidian and Kalinga style of architecture are predominant in this premises covering around 400,000 square feet of area.

Lingaraj Temple, Bhubaneswar—

Bhubaneswar’s Lingaraj Temple is dedicated to Harihara that means here Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu are assembled together as one soul as the Swayambhu deity. Known to be one of the tallest temples of Odisha, the edifice was eventually built at different intervals during the last decade of the 11th century.

Konark Sun Temple—

The finest yet the most mysterious of all the edifices- Konark was built to dedicate the Sun God by Narasimhadeva I, a ruler of the Ganga Dynasty. But on the day of the inaugural, Dharmapad, a boy fell from the Vimana of the temple while fixing the last stone up there. Since then, the temple is said to be cursed as the deity was never worshipped here. This architecturally magnificent temple traveled time and even stands today by enshrining its relics to tell the heartbreaking story of the history and how it was dishonored by the creators.
