Siddheshwar Temple

Siddheshwar Temple is a typical Orissan Temple situated at Bhubaneswar in Khordha District. A very graceful figure of the standing Lord Ganesh is the attraction of the temple.

The temple has a pancha-ratha sanctum with a five-divisional wall. The wall is further sub-divided in the upper part into two registers by the median bands. These walls are decorated with khakhara and pidha-mundis and consist of seven mouldings. The shikhara is grouped by a row of miniature turrets, which is surmounted by four rampant lions on the central ratha.

The main amalasaraka of the temple is supported by four squatting figures, which is the characteristic of the Orissan Temple.

The temple is easily accessible by state buses from the Bhubaneswar Bus Station.
