Odisha Style, Bhubaneswar: Yameshwar Temple

This temple complex lies further west of Papanasini and Makreshwar. Yameshwar is another example of the 13th c profusion in temple construction. A small shrine in the complex, possibly from the 7th c, is an indication that many of the existing temples in Bhubaneswar were built on the sites of earlier temples.
