About Srimukhalingeswara Temple

The temple is situated on the shores of the Vamsadhara River. It has various sculptures, carvings and beautiful architecture that reflect the Indo-Aryan architectural style.

The arched gate of the temple is adorned with statues of lions on each side. The first gate of the temple leads to the outer prakara and a mandapam. Another carved gate leads to the inner prakara where the main shrine is located. The temple complex has various shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva and Lord Ganesha.

A finely carved temple is situated in the middle of the inner prakara. Various images of gods and goddesses are carved on the walls of the temple. Special pujas and religious ceremonies are organised on the occasion of Mahashivratri.

"It was an amazing experience performing Rudra-abhishekham"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Aug 19, 2014
I made a visit to Srimukhalingeswara Temple on 18.08.2014 for the purpose of doing RUDHRAABHISHEKHAM to Lord Shiva. It was an amazing experience for me as the total time taken to complete the worship was nearly three hours and fifteen minutes. No other Shiva pooja was of this duration and type. It was an amazing experience.

"Oldest temple in the Srikakulam district"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted Jul 4, 2014
Oldest temple in the Srikakulam district. Almost 1500 years old. Fully made of red stone, it was built by the Kalinga kings. Maintenance needs to improve.
