Bhubaneswar : Kedareswara temple

Recently,I happened to be at the temple of Sri Kedareswara of Bhubaneswar.Don't like to describe the history of it as it's very famous for its construction skills and a bit to add to this picture.And this is not the first time visiting it.Whenever I have a chance to go over this place,always try to be there to have some time there.Because,there was no priest or any persuasion for money,Just a series of  splendid constructions and lingering thoughts of past artisans as to how greatly erected these intricate designs studded temples such a long back with that accurate precision.

Peaceful ambiance all over though which was located in the heart of city.Bhubaneswar is a city of many surprises.Full of temples.Yet a bustling one.And comparatively a neat and happening place in many respects.The red sand got it's ultimate designs which only to be considered the signature of Orissa.
