Kedareshwar Temple

Kedareshwar Temple is an ancient temple believed to have been built between the last half of the 11th century and the first half of the 12th century. An inscription at the entrance, on the right hand wall of the Jagamohana, records the donation of a perpetual lamp to Lord Kedareshwar by Raja Pramadi, the younger brother of the Ganga king Anantavarman Chodaganga, in the 11th century. Thus it is evident that the temple existed as a prominent place of Shiva worship during the early part of the 12th century. Kedareshwar Temple is 4 km from Bhubaneswar, which is easily accessible from any part of India by road, rail and air. The Bhubaneswar Bus Station is 8 km from the city center.
