ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR ‘SIDDHESHWAR TEMPLE’ OF BHUBANESWAR , ODISHA
About Siddheshwar Temple:
Siddheshwar Temple dates back to 10th century and is located within the premises of the Mukteswar temple. Historians say all the 10th century temples in Bhubaneswar reveal the unification of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain temple architecture.
Siddheshwar Temple is taller than Mukteswar temple and its outer walls are covered with minimal carvings. The temple is not as ornate as Mukteswar but has a charm of its own as far as the construction pattern is concerned.
The temple tower, built in Pancharatna style of classical Kalinga School of temple architecture, is grouped by a row of miniature turrets and all four sides of the tower are surmounted by four lions. While Lord Shiva is worshiped in the sanctum sanctorum, a beautiful figure of Lord Ganesh in standing posture is another attraction of the temple.
The Ganesh idol that is kept covered with a thick layer of red vermilion has been installed at the eastern base of the temple spire. One has to walk through a beautifully maintained garden to reach the temple.
