Mukteswara Temple



Mukteswara Temple is situated at Bhuvneshwar in Orissa. It is an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The main highlight of this temple is its magnificent decorative gateway, reminiscent of Buddhist influence in Orissa. The temple dates back to 10th century and reflects the perfect harmony of sculpture and architecture. Every inch of the temple is curved in sandstone.
Although, the Mukteswara Temple is a small monument, the sculpture decorated is exquisitely executed. New architectural designs, art motifs and new conceptions about the iconography of the cult images are introduced by the builders of this temple. There is a tank with sacred water towards the eastern side of the complex. Several other shrines can also be sited inside the temple complex.
