There are a few temples of the same name in Bhubaneswar, I’m actually surprised there isn’t more duplication of names in a city that has such a dense population of ancient monuments.
I’ve called this one Pataleswara Temple II, and it is located 120m north-west of the famous Parasuramesvara Temple in old Bhubaneswar.
Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this west-facing temple built from laterite blocks was unfortunately locked when I visited.
I have not been able to glean any more information on it either from my books or by searching the internet. So this blog is really just to document that the monument exists, and could be very quickly visited at the same time as Parasuramesvara Temple.
