This is the picture of Parashurameswar Temple, Bhubaneswar. I visited this Temple in the last week of April. This is one of the oldest and most well preserved temples in Bhubaneswar. It was probably built around 650 AD.

Features of old Kalinga Architecture are present here. Though the Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, it has depictions of Sakta Deities. This is the first Temple in Bhubaneswar where we find the whole panel of Saptamatrikas.
