Built during the 13th Century AD, this beautiful temple along the bank of Bindu Sagar Lake largely follows the layout and structural form of the Lingaraj temple save for the carvings which represent Vaishnavism. Besides its architectural beauty, what makes this temple unique is that, it’s the only temple in Bhubaneswar dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

The temple was built by Queen Chandrika Devi the daughter of King Ananga Bhima Deva III in memorium of her husband who died on the battlefield in modern day West Bengal.

Queen Chandrika Devi was an accomplished dancer, musician and an artist. She was also a devotee of Lord Vishnu. The temple had a commemorative inscription of the Queen Chandrika Devi which is now preserved at the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain in London. Noted Archaeologist Padmashree Late Shri. Paramananda Acharya brought a cast of the inscription during his tenure as the Superintendent of the Odisha State Museum in the 1950’s and is on display/

Apart from Lord Vishnu, Lord Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra complete the holy trinity of presiding deities. Unlike the Jagannath temple, Puri, the deities is complete in form.

Like all Vishnu temples, the Bhoga Mandap (Prasad / Offering hall) is an integral part of the temple. The “Abhada” of the Ananta Basudev temple as it is called is much sought after by the locals as well as visitors.
