Belonging to the transitional phase of the Kalingan architecture and built in 1050 A.D., the Brahmeswara temple of Bhubaneswar bears striking resemblance to the Mukteswara temple. The jagmohan of the temple has been exquisitely carved and the sculptural iconography such as the lion head motif is very much close to the Mukteswar temple. The temple is unique architecturally as it marks the beginning of use of the iron beams for the first time in any temple edifice. The carvings over the door frame depict beautiful floral designs. Like the Rajarani temple, there are images of the eight directional Guardian Deities. There are also quite a number of tantric-related images, and even Chamunda appears on the western facade, holding a trident and a human head, standing on a corpse. Shiva and other deities are also depicted in their horrific aspects. One of the lost inscriptions recovered from the temple mentions about a Queen Kolavati who had presented 'many beautiful women' to the temple. This might be a direct indication of the devadasi tradition.
