Khiching Temple

Khiching Temple

Khiching Temple, Visit Khiching Temple of Orissa, Temple tour of Khiching Temple, Religious place of OrissaLocation : Khiching, Orissa
Dates Back : 7th or 8th Century
Architectural Style : Orissan Temple Architecture

The town of Khiching, which is now a rather distant destination in the northern area of Orissa, was obviously once a religious center of some significance. The temples, which remain today, although interesting in their own right, are but the humble remnants of a more glorious past.

The big temple of "Kichakeswari", originally probably dating back to the 7th or 8th century, was reconstructed from the ruins of an earlier temple in the early 20th century. The reconstruction, which used the traditional technique of moving large stone elements up a huge earthen ramp, proved that the ancient skill of temple building and architecture survived into the current century.

Unfortunately, scholars feel that the constructed temple does not mirror the true form of the original, and that the shape now is a bit disproportionate. Nevertheless, the sculptures on this and other Khiching temples are very beautiful. Large, tall images, they are slender and graceful, reflecting a remarkable sophistication and deftness of touch. In addition to the temples, there is a small museum in Khiching with some very well images.
