Lingaraj Temple
The well-known Lingaraj Temple has a distinct approach for a large number of devotees. It is located near to Bindu Sagar and consists of taking the main divinity of the Lingaraj temple to the lake for a ritual bath. It is believed that a large amount of devotees visit here to dip into its immaculate water.

The Lingaraj Temple in Bhubaneswar is originally dedicated to Lord Shiva, or Tribhuvaneswar portraying the true combination of harmony between Orissa's architectural style and decorative motifs.

Dating back to the 7th century, it is believed that Legend has it that Lord Shiva created the lake to quench the thirst of Parvati. This temple is laid out on the panchratha plan with five divisions to the temple and five richly engraved mouldings. Moreover, the temple is famed worldwide for its ornamental carvings and fine workmanship.

This temple spreads over 25,000 sq. ft and its 100 subsidiary shrines are encircled by high walls, with a main entrance on the east, and secondary gates on the North and South. The 54 metre high Sri Mandir temple is richly adorned with gorgeous carvings.

The Parvati temple lies in the north-east corner which carries remarkably stunning carvings, and persists with the 13th century tradition of serving meals to 51 priests and 51 underprivileged persons daily.
