Kapilesvara Temple

Other Temples, Visit Other Temples of Orissa, Temple tour of Other Temples, Religious place of OrissaLocation : Bhubaneswar, Orissa
Main Attraction : Kapilesvara Temple

There are many other temples that are worth visiting during your temple tours to Orissa in India. These are the Nilamadhava temple, Padmeswara temple, Kanakeswara temple, Kenduli temple and the Kosaleswara temple.

Of the many nameless temples, two merit attention. One of them, displaying a striking affinity with the 'Lingaraja' temple, stands buried in the ground up to its 'bandhana', a few metres to the southeast of the latter within the compound of the Temple Office.

The other, situated a few metres to the east of the Lingaraja temple, exhibits conspicuous 'Anga-Shikharas' (clustering round the 'Gandi), the full play of which are encountered in the 'Rajarani' temple. Like the latter, the 'Dikpalas' on its corner 'Rathas' are standing.

The 'Kapilesvara' temple, located at a distance of 3 -km south of Bhubaneswar , is a late specimen, dating from the 'Gajapati' period or even later. With no pretension to artistic or architectural merit, its only attraction is a stone grill, brought from an earlier temple and fixed in its inner compound wall.

Sculptured with three rows of animated figures, of which the lower two depict dancers and musicians, the piece excels even the analogous latticed windows of the 'Parasuramesvara' temple in dynamic vigour and rhythm.
