The Rajarani Temple is a beautiful example of the architectural wonder practiced by the skilled workers in the ancient era. This temple was built in the middle part of the 11th century. The temple lies to the north-eastern side of the Lingaraj temple. It is one of the most visited temples of Bhubaneswar. But the strange fact is that the inner sanctum of the temple no longer houses any deity or idol.

This Hindu temple was initially considered to be a love temple as there was no deity and the walls featured carvings of couple or women in erotic position. The temple has got the name Rajarani from the yellowish sandstone that was used in the construction of the monument. The Archelogical Survey of India maintains the temple and has implemented ticket system for tourists to enter inside the temple.
