Very near to Raja Raani temple and in a good location....a must visit. Architecture is superb and peaceful. Avoid going in summer afternoon. Better to plan in early morning or evening. Generally less crowded.

This is one of Bhubaneswar temples, so it is worth to see it to have a complete picture. Beware of the fact that the temple is still in use so you need to take off your shoes before entering.
