Situated in the heart of Sonepur, the Pacharatha temple was constructed in a chariot size. As many as five temples are built up on a single platform here. Lord Siva, Ganesh, Kartikeya and Rishava along with Goddess Parvati are worshipped here. King Birmitra Singhdeo is said to have built this temple to commemorate the death of his son Prince Somobhusan. Generally Lord Ganesh sits facing towards south in all the Shiva temples but in Puncharatha temple an east faced icon of Lord Ganesh is found. The architectural style of Pancharatha temple is compared with that of the Sub Temple of Konark.
