Ancient temple with breathtaking architecture. Other than the main temple there are several small temples within the campus, each of them worth a visit. There is a small pond inside with an interesting myth- the water of the pond will make fighting couples stop fighting for ever and vice versa!
Photography is allowed on payment of a fee. Entry as far as I can remember is free.I visited this place last on 2009. Things might have changed after that though.

A Prominent Place of Worship.
Be Careful of the Pandas. They try to fleece you.

It is a very famous temple of lord Shiva located in the old area of bhubaneswar.Just in front of the temple there is a police station with a ground.It is used to park vehicles legally.Inside Lingaraj temple there are many temples.You need around 60-75 minutes to fully explore.

The spiritual flavour of this temple is detracted by the aggressive security, pushy pandas. Beautiful temple complex but I could not enjoy it as much since it was a very very hot afternoon.
