About the Temple
The Temple was built during the 11 century AD, by the Somavansi dynasty,the temple derives its name from the red and yellow sandstone “Rajarani” used to build the temple.
The temple is devoid of any idols inside the sanctum and is not associated with any sect of Hinduism though the shaivite influence can be gauged from the decorative recesses in the wall.
One can see the inspiration from the Khajuraho group of temples in the coy and intricate carvings in Rajarani temple. Historians attribute it to the fact that the Somavansi dynasty migrated to Odisha from Central India.
The temple is maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India and the entry is ticketed.
