Rajarani Temple

A TEMPLE WITH NO DEITY

RAJARANI TEMPLE

It is set in picturesque surroundings, noted for its intricate carvings of floral, animal and human figures. The sculptures alone repudiate the theory that the Rajarani was ever a Vaishnava temple, but there are also the Shaiva sculptures on the body of the main temple. The side ciches have been robbed of their images, but the bases of the Southern and Northern ciches have been carved with scenes of Linga-worship. Besides the main temple also contains on its’ vacates three panels which shows Siva and his female counterpart dancing in the camping of attendants holding musical instruments. Constructed in the 11th Century, it has an unusual tower. More interestingly, this has no deity.
