Markandeyesvara Temple

Markandeyesvara, Visit Markandeyesvara of Orissa, Temple tour of Markandeyesvara, Religious place of OrissaLocation : Bhubaneswar, Orissa
Presiding Deities : Lord Shiva

A photocopy of the Sisiresvara temple, it is located near the southwest corner of "Bindu-Sarovara". The 'Deul' is well preserved, but the 'Jagamohana' is entirely modern, though built after the original one.

The decoration of the doorframe is slightly dissimilar from that of the 'Sisiresvara' temple. Here the figures of eight 'Grahas' ('Ketu' being absent) on the projected architrave over the lintel containing a seated figure of Parvati; the jambs are divided into three vertical compartments, of which those on the left from bottom upwards are a 'Saiva' 'Dvarapala' (door-keeper), the four-armed Brahma and the two-armed Agni.

The central figure on the right jamb is damaged, the other two being the 'Dvarapala' and 'Varuna' holding a noose in his left hand.Like the Sisiresvara temple, the facade of this temple is conquered by a 'Chaitya'-window containing a ten-armed figure of 'Nataraja' of neat workmanship. The niches of the central projections contain images of 'Ganesa', 'Kartikeya' and Parvati, the last devoid of ornaments and wearing a 'Jata-Mukuta'.
