Map is wrong. I had reported this earlier also but it has not been corrected. This temple is within the city only and not about 25 km as reported.

Lord Shiva is worshipped as 'Mukteshwara" in this temple which means "Lord who gives Mukti or freedom or a form of Salvation". Located close to Lingaraja temple, this temple is comparatively less crowded. The structure was built in 10th Century A.D. and is well known for its architecture and arched gateway.

It was the most crowded of all ancient temples near Bhubaneswar. The architecture was unique and it reminded me some temples I saw in Cambodia. Not to be missed.

The temple is located very close to the Brahmeswara temple and Rajarani temple in Bhubanewar. It's a good idea to visit it in the morning when there is hardly any crowd and you can enjoy the beauty of the place peacefully. You can spend around 45 minutes to an hour at the place if history and architecture interest you.
