Lingaraj Temples

s Built in the 10th Century, it is a rare masterpiece and an example of ancient Hindu style of architecture that is covered by expound carvings. It represents the high point of the Orissan style, where both sculpture and architecture have evolved in perfect harmony. Its grandeur lies in its towering 55-m high deul (spire) with dramatic vertical ribs and in the consummate artistry with which each sculpture and embellishment is executed. The temple’s large courtyard has more than 100 small shrines. The main diety here is Shiva as Tribhuvaneswar (`Lord of Three Worlds’).
