  Situated on an island in the Mahanadi River, about 10 kms. from Badamba in Cuttack District, the Simhanath   temple (c. 9th century) is interesting for its images of Shaiva, Shakta, and Vaishnava cults of Hinduism. The   jagmohana (porch) appears to be influenced by the Vaital Deul temple in Bhubaneswar.
  The Simhanath temple combines older features with new and energetic experiments. This can be seen in such   things as the elongation of the Paga images which crown the niches, and in the addition of a third terrace to the   roof of the jagmohana.
