Another beautiful temple in the by-lanes of the city. It has lost a major chunk of its exterior, with only the entrance arch remaining. But the richness of the main structure and the tower clearly give a clue regarding what a grandiose temple it was. This 10th century temple has intricate designs and beautiful sculptures.

What a beautiful standalone temple it is! A tall tower topped by an attractive finial with the flat roof of the mantapa in the front. The walls of the mantapa have a series of miniature sculptures all over the surface, including those of Saptamatrikas and various forms of Shiva.
Lingaraj Temple Complex
Ananta Vasudeva Temple
This temple, dedicated to Bhagawan Krishna, was built during the 13th century. It is a rare Vaishnava temple in the midst of Shaiva temples and was probably built when the Shaivite influence was waning. It is said that the temple offers afternoon meals to visitors, and the ingredients used are the ones originally prepared when the temple was constructed.
