Today, models like BIM are used for building models and mockups. However, one thing to note is that The Gangesvari Temple was constructed in 1200s. The only electricity people had seen back then was lightening in the sky.
The Gangesvari Temple at Gop seems to be a physical model/prototype for Konark Sun Temple. The engineers probably planned the Sun Temple by building a prototype and rehearsed the building of the temple considering that they had a relatively short time to build.
The Entrance to Sri Mandira on a Gloomy, Rainy day (the day Puri saw a record rainfall) This place has seen so many events. Storms, rains, lightning, wars, blood but has retained the purity and composure forever. Afterall it is the home to the purest of the purest. Jai Jagannath!pic.twitter.com/SSrUPzxi3H
The Astounding Jaleswara Temple, Baranga.
This Magnificent Adobe of Shiva was built in 12th Century CE by the ruler of Patia-Baranga.
Many local Bhubaneswar people do not know its existence and when they do visit, they are greeted with a sweet surprise.

Vinayaki, a lesser known form of Ganesha.
The female form of Ganesha is one of the 64 forms of Mahamaya. This rare form is found at the Chausathi Yogini Temple, Hirapur.
What makes sense is that who are we to define the gender of divinity.

The Lingaraja Temple, as viewed from the Curzon Stand. The stunning landscape and the view of sky is as a result of a passing low pressure. The Lingaraja is the tallest temple in Bhubaneswar and is remnant of a great civilization that we as a generation are apathetic about.pic.twitter.com/3YSFIEgKfx
