Bhubhaneshwar Temple Tour (City tour): Start the tour with a visit to Lingraj Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva (Non Hindu are not allowed inside Temple) adorned with beautiful sculptures, which have been carved on the spire. Mukteshwar Temple, is one of the most prominent temples of Bhubaneswar and has been constructed in the style that is quite similar to the one used in the Kalinga School of Temple Architecture. Rajarani Temple is also among the renowned temples in Bhubaneswar made from the wonderful red and gold sandstone. Brahmeshwara Temple built around 11th century, is another Siva-linga temple famous for its intricately carved sculptures.
The temple has an 18m high tower. Parashurameswar Temple, built in 650 AD, is one of the oldest temples existing in Bhubaneshwar. A typical example of the Orissan style of temple architecture, the temple features pine spire curving up to a point over the sanctum and the pyramid-covered Jagamohana, where people sit and pray. Small but richly decorated shrine of Lord Shiva, the Parashurameswar Temple has sculptures of amorous couples, animals and floral designs. Siddheshwar Temple is a typical Orissan Temple with very graceful figure of the standing Lord Ganesh with seven mouldings.
