These two small temples are located east of the Bindu Sagar tank, along a water channel that runs around the north and east of Bindu Sagar. A road that winds from the Mukteshwar temple group towards Bindu Sagar, along which also lie the Swarnajaleshwar and Kotitirtheshwar temples, passes close to these temples.
Sari is another among the many 13-th c Eastern Ganga-era temples built around Old Town Bhubaneswar, between and around the Lingaraja compound and Bindu Sagar tank
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.
Across the road from (and to the west of) the Papanasini complex lies Makareshwar temple, also from around the 13th c.
This late-13th c temple is located adjacent to the north wall of the Lingaraja temple complex, and is set within its own small walled-off area, surrounded by four corner shrines.
The late-13th c Ananta Vasudeva Temple is a smaller version of Lingaraja, and is the only Vaishnavite temple among the historic Bhubaneswar temples. Situated on the east bank of Bindu Sagar tank, this temple complex has the complete retinue of Odia temple structures in a line:
This 13th c temple is located across the road from the much earlier Shatrughaneshwar group of temples (7th c). The mandap is detached from the sanctuary structure

This 12th c temple is different in design to the other Bhubaneswar temples, and the reason for that rests with the object of prayer inside the temple, which is a 3 meter high ‘lingam’.
