The Rajarani Temple in Bhubaneswar is a beautiful temple with amazing architecture belonging to the mid 11th century A.D.
|Rajarani Temple, Bhubaneswar|
It is located near the Lingaraj Temple. In the traditional sanskrit texts, the Rajarani Temple was referred to as Indresvara Siva Temple.
Presently, there is no deity in the sanctum. It has been named Rajarani
from Rajarania- the fine grained yellowish sand stone that has been used to
build the entire edifice.
The Rajarani Temple has scenes of marriage of Lord Shiva & Devi Pravati. The
walls of the sanctum grace superb sculptures of ‘nayikas’ in various roles and
moods that appear true-to-life with grace, beauty, motion & expressions. There
is also ample display of nature in the sculptures.
