Hello, people today I am going to tell you about my experience of a visit to Lingraj temple which is one of the oldest as well as the most beautiful temple of Bhubaneswar, famous for Kalinga architecture this temple was built by the king of Somavanshi dynasty. People say that this temple was made from work on just single stone although the height of temple is around 180 ft it's still a mystery how people would have been able to make such a tall temple at that time.

Clicking pictures are prohibited inside the temple so I can't give you the pictures but let me tell you there are more than 100 small cave type temples inside this temple so many shivlings are there and there are so many dedicated workers who make Prashad which is given to god and the food available here is so yum and please don't forget to taste "Pokhara bhat" which is made of curd and rice trust me its available only in Orissa and it tastes heavenly. People from different parts of the country gather here on occasion of Shivratri (around one lakh) and if I tell you on regular basis more than thousand people visit every day. It's famous because in this temple shiv and Vishnu is worshiped at the same time. So come and visit this place you will love it.
