Event Details
Orissa- An eastern Indian state on the Bay of Bengal is known for its tribal cultures and many ancient Hindu temples. The historical monuments of Odisha stand testament to the glorious architectural heritage of the state.

The architectural style continued to evolve incorporating new styles and aspects which added to their legend. The capital Bhubaneswar is home to hundreds of temples notably the intricately carved Mukteshvara and the Lingaraj Temple complex dating to the 11th century. The monuments were not just restricted to places of worship.
