Lord Ganesha is surely one of the most loved Gods in the Hindu pantheon. 








 Paste of ghee and flowers indicates that the temple is still in use.

'Parsurameswara Temple, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, Part-I' ..by KJS Chatrath




Parashurameswar Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, is believed  to be one of the oldest temples in Bhubaneswar and its  date of construction is estimated  to be around  650 A. D. The temple is a specimen of the architectural styles of Odia temples. The temple has sculptures of animals, amorous couples and floral designs. The outer walls have carvings of Lord Ganesh, Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati and other Hindu Gods.The special attraction of this temple are the ‘One Thousand Lingas’ placed in the North West corner of the temple.

This temple is next to the famous Mukteshwara temple. The Saptamatrika frieze at the back showing seven mother goddesses is done in amazing detail considering that the temple dates back to the mid 7th century.
