It is situated in the capital of Odisha i.e Bhuwneshwar.It is a beautiful ancient temple having a big campus.Here leather items ,mobile ,camera etc. are not allowed to take inside.There is no any ticket to go inside the temple.Here lord Shiva is worshipped. Many people come here from very far away to worship.

I had been there the day after Mahashivratri. What an amazing temple for Shiva devotees. The shivaling inside the temple is worth seeing and praying to. Blessed to visit the temple.

The temple complex is huge. Avoid taking with you mobile, cameras or leather items during your visit. The temple is located in quite interior of the city and the road leading to it is relatively narrow and stopping the car outside is difficult. On our return journey we took an ola cab but the cab driver has to stop the... More

A beautiful Shiva Temple situated just 3 km away from Fortune Park Sishamo hotel where we stayed. A beautiful and huge temple telling the story of the era passed by. It's very soothing to sit and meditate.

It's one of the best temples situated in the heart of the city..It's has religious value as it's more than 1000 years old surrounded by many small temples and a pond nearby

This is very badly maintained. Dirty and stinks. Middle men in the name of pujari / guides mislead and fleece the visitors.

A very huge and elegance campus that houses temples dedicated to many lords. The constant smell of kapoor/incense sticks fill the atmosphere with positivity. It's a bonus visit if it's drizzling, you'll certainly enjoy that.

People visiting the place only in devotion, faith, love and sincere belief. Otherwise really a dirty place all around which can easily be cleaned and manage properly by the authority. Pandas and priests are not very helpful and visitors friendly particularly for the elder persons from out side Odisha
