Built in 650 A.D., this temple is said to be one of the oldest temples of Bhubaneshwar that is still surviving at present. The highlighted feature of this temple is the architectural design of the temple. The exterior walls of the temple is adorned with beautiful sculptures of Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati, Lord Ganesha, Lord Muruga and many other Hindu deities.

Parashurameshvara Temple, Bhubaneshwar Reviews
Built in 650 CE, during the Shailodbhava dynasty, this is Parashurameshvara Temple in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Most ancient temples in India have only vimana (that houses the sanctum). This is the first known one to have jagamohana (hall of worshippers) too. Another interesting fact about this temple is that intricate carving on its walls contains the earliest representation of Mahishamardini image (Goddess Durga as we know Her today). Fascinating! 💕
