Although a majority of them are dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Capital City also houses heritage structures related to Buddhism and Jainism. Each of these structures are characterised by magnificent architectural designs and beautiful sculptures. Apparently, the city derives its names from the Sanskrit name of Lord Shiva, Tribhuvaneswar, and mythological references describe the area as Ekamra Kshetra and Shaiva Pitha.
