  • Visited Lingaraj Temple many times. Leather items, mobiles, cameras are not allowed inside the Temple. Pandas will cover you as soon as you enter the Temple. But if you want to give offerings on your own, can do it. It is a temple where Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva has combined themselves as Lord Lingaraj. You can see the statues of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva at the gate of the Main temple entrance. In the Temple complex you can see the temples of almost all the deities worshiped by the Hindus. Beautiful architectural designs. Wonderful place to visit
