    Not creating a child theme would stop IE from delivering the content, maybe some JavaScript or bad coding.

    The theme creators say "While the theme looks good on IE we advise against it especially in the admin section of Mantra (the Mantra Settings)".

    On a first look (check your home page source), you kinda blew it when you've added the CSS style before the <!DOCTYPE html > .
    A possible IE problem could be from your "facebook like widget" you added on your first page as modal. Try deactivating that and see if IE shows your website a bit better.

    This, however, it doesn't look like a WP problem, more like a Mantra Theme problem (css & js).

    The major problem is likely the mark-up (HTML) errors on your page:


    As mentioned above, having any code above the DOCTYPE causes major problems -- other errors may be problematic as well.

    I implemented this theme few days back but never thought it will not work on IE as I am using chrome and mozilla

    IE is really bed understanding how to parse html page.
    Follow all rules

    Glad you sorted it. Yes, IE is notoriously problematic -- though recent versions are WAY, WAY better than older ones. Perhaps someday it will actually conform to standards and stop driving all of us crazy?!
