The most striking sculpture of the temple is that Goddess Kali. She is represented to be standing on a human head, often referring to the interpretation that our body constantly triumphs our body. Even though the Chausath Yogini Temple is one of the greater parts of our heritage, it is still greatly obscured in our history. This is primarily because it was guarded as one of the greatest secrets by the cult practitioners.
The Chausath Yogini Temple became mainstream only in 1953 when eminent historian, Kedarnath Mohapatra pieced back the temple and restored it to its glory of the circular roofless structure that we know of today. The temple is located at a distance of 20 km from the city of Bhubaneshwar. One can easily get to the temple via the Bhubaneshwar-Puri highway and get onto the dirt leading towards Hirapur. Traveling through this city, you will certainly reach the site of ancient tantric practices and witness one of the most beautiful genres of architecture that is completely different from the traditional Kalingan architecture. The temple is indeed a very beautiful one.
