Sisiresvara Temple

Sisiresvara Temple

Sisiresvara Temple, Visit Sisiresvara Temple of Orissa, Temple tour of Sisiresvara Temple, Religious place of OrissaLocation : Bhubaneswar, Orissa
Presiding Deity : Shiva

In the same compound, immediately to the north of the 'Vaital Deul' and contemporaneous with it, is the Sisiresvara temple, now deprived of its crowning members and also 'Vi-Sama' and the fifth 'Bhumi-Amla'.

The Duel & Jagmohana
In architectural form the 'Deul', jointly with the rectangular 'Jagamohana', approximates to that of the 'Parasuramesvara' temple, but in decorative details it is closely related to the Vaital Deul, its figures being equally remarkable for their fine workmanship and sensitive modelling (e.g. Nataraja within the medallion of the upper 'Chaitya'-window on the frontal 'Raha'). Its 'Pabhaga' consists of four decorated mouldings as in the Vaital Deul.

All the images of 'Parsva-Devatas'- the four-armed 'Ganesa', the two-armed 'Kartikeya' and the eight-armed "Mahishasuramardini" are intact in their respective niches of the central projections of the 'Bada'. The niches on either side of the central projection have dissimilar forms of Shiva together with 'Aja-Ekapada' and such composite forms as "Ardhanarisvara" and "Hari-Hara", while those of the 'Kanika' contain 'Kanyas'.

The decoration of the doorframe is particularly attractive. In addition to the usual decorative bands of scroll - work and floral motifs, similar to those on the Vaital Deul, two facets of the jambs have each at the bottom a 'Naga'-Figure holding a foliated 'Purna- Ghata', the symbol of plenty and prosperity, and a four armed 'Saiva' guard.
