In the vast campus of the Lingaraj temple, occupying a high plate in the trilogy of Orissa temples, there are many mini-shrines adorned with several most worshipful deities. Among them, Mother Parvathi's temple beckons ardent attention and soulful veneration. This is the priceless contribution of Yayati Kesari built in the 9th century. Refined royal patronage and superb artistry of kalinga sculptors arrest the attention and raises hands in devotion. Despite centuries rolled by, the excellent craftsmanship of the sculptors withstanding the ravanges of weather hypnotises the beholders. 

The Mother's icon is chiselled to perfection with crown on head modeled on the Dravidian style. It is adorned with elaborate motifs exhibiting supreme skill of artists. She holds in her left hand a receptacle filled with ambrosia symbolising her desire to fulfil the desires of her ardent bhaktas, when prayed with genuine faith. The right hand is adorned with a fully blown lotus flower indicating thereby that her votaries bloom and lead a blissful, life if righteousness characterises their thoughts and actions. The Mother's visage is beautified with sandal paste chandanaalankar in the mornings which sight transports the viewers to ethereal world Daily worship is carried on with agamic rituals. And periodical festivals are celebrated with pomp and splendour befitting the taste and status of the royal patron.

It lies in the vast campus of Lingaraj temple, accessible by four wheelers from any part of the city.
