BHUVANESWAR
The Hari-Hara Kshetra

This threw HIM into a dilemma. Sensing his doubts Maha Vishnu assured HIM that every thing which distinguished Varanasi from time immemorial was also to be found in that place. Satisfied with environs and atmosphere on examination, He stayed there in the form of Linga, which is now seen in the famous Linga Raj temple. Though many shrines were constructed, renovated and remodeled around this temple from time to time, the same Linga is kept on without changing its place. The Linga now worshipped has several other prominent names, among them, Tribhuvaneswar and Kritivas are very popular. The staying of Siva here brought another blessing unsought for. It harmonized the rival cults of Saivism and Vaishnavism soon after His settlement in the Vaishnava Kshetra. And it established name as a famous Harihara Kshetra in course of centuries.
