“A must see. Jewel amongst the temples in Bhuvaneswar.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The plan configuration of this actually tiny temple is simply amazing. Sits low within a low walled enclosure. Intricately carved. One can spend a day observing the activity in and around the temple.

“Mukteswar the Lord of Freedom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The ambience is very good. The panda's/priests demand donations mainly from foreignors. The same is optional. The entry into the monument is free. On request you can enter the Sanctum unlike other Hindu temples in Odisha.
