About Rajim

    • Not Allowed: Pets

Rajim is situated on the right bank of the Mahanadi River. Most prominent attraction of the town is the Rajivalochana Temple, which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Tall single figures sculptured on the face adorn the twelve pillars of the temple. These sculptures include Durga with eight arms, the Ganga and Yamuna and exquisitely carved incarnation of Vishnu, Rama, Varaha (boar) and Narasimha (Man-cum-Lion) and others.

In the town, a black stone statue of the Buddha meditating under the Bodhi tree can also be found. Around Rajivalochana Temple, several temples can be found that are dedicated to different incarnations of Lord Vishnu such as Vamana (boar), Narasimha (Man-cum-Lion), Badrinath and Jagannath. Kuleshvara Mahadeva Temple is located on an island, which was severed from the mainland by the river.

Devotees can find inscriptions belonging to Somavanashis, Nalas and Kalchuris in this temple. In the town, which is the meeting point of 3 holy rivers, Mahanadi, Pairy and Sondhu, several beautiful temples belonging to 7th to 11th centuries AD can be found.
