Gauri Temple

Gauri Temple, Visit Gauri Temple of Orissa, Temple tour of Gauri Temple, Religious place of OrissaLocation : Bhubaneswar, Orissa
Presiding Deity : Parvati
Also Known As : Gaurichala

There are two other temples at Bhubaneswar, which may be regarded as close contemporaries of the Mukteshwar temple. One of them is the Sureswar, a very small structure which stands near the Kotitirtheswar temple in the close neighbourhood of the Swarnajaleswar temple and the other is the Gouri temple located in the compound of the Kedareswar temple.

The 'Mastaka' has undergone restoration with the result that it's plastered and white - washed surface presents a dire contrast to the lavishly decorated purplish-red body of the temple. The 'Jagamohana' was erected some sixty years back to replace the dilapidated original one.Both the 'Kanika' and 'Anuratha-Pagas' are decorated with two superimposed 'Khakhara-Mundis' with a 'Kalasa' on the top, while the subjects of the decoration of the 'Raha' are 'Bho'-motifs as in the Muktesvara temple.

A bold moulding relieved with lotus-petals marks off the 'Gandi' from the 'Mastaka'. The latter, now consisting of two 'Khakharas', with a recess in between, maintains the 'Paga'-divisions throughout and is crowned by a 'Kalasa'. Like the Muktesvara temple, this temple is noted for the exuberance of ornamentation.
