Mystery surrounds the Rajarani temple. It stands without any presiding deity inside! Interestingly, all other essential architectural segments of the temple are intact -- Vimana (tower), Jagamohana (audience hall) and the porches. Another intriguing feature is that the name of the temple has nothing to do with any king or queen but refers to a type of sandstone locally available... More

Located at a distance of 1.5 kilometres from Lingaraja temple, you could plan to pay a quick visit to this temple after completing the darshan at the Lingaraja. This temple has no idols of any deities. What attracts tourists here is the exotic sculpture work in the temple. The walls of the temple are very beautifully decorated with idols of... More

It is an empty rather almost abandoned temple. Only the sculptures are good. There is a big and well maintained garden in both sides of the approaching road. Ideal place for lovers, young couples and children to play in the garden.

In reality, the temple got its name from the variety of sandstone used to make it. The carvings on the temple have numerous erotic sculptures.... More

The temple is believed to have been known originally as Indreswara. It is locally known as a "love temple" because of the erotic carvings of women and couples in the temple.

This is a small well constructed site as a temple, devoid of any deities. So don't bother about taking off your shoes!!!! Why is it called a temple? and why the name?? Interesting site. You will get the answers when you visit it.
