Built in the eleventh century, the temple of Li?garaja in Bhubaneswar is acclaimed as one of the finest temples of India. With its construction the Orissan temple style reached its mature phase and set the model for later temples to follow. The book, for the first time, makes an in-depth study of the temple in all its aspects such as its history, architecture, sculpture, mode of worship, festivals and organization of services, to understand the temple in its totality. The architectural features and religious aspects are described in the light of Orissan architectural lore and k?etra mahatmyas of Bhubaneswar.Originally conceived as a Siva temple, in course of time, it was transformed into a temple for both Siva and Vi??u. With perhaps the largest concentration of temples, ranging from the eleventh to the fifteenth centuries, the temple premises united the Saiva, Sakta and Vai??ava followers and fostered a spirit of harmony in the religious life of Orissa.Printed Pages:
