Khajuraho Things to Do: 150 reviews and 361 photos

This temple is located in the souther group about 1km south of the Jain temples next to the Khodar River. It is dedicated to Siva and consists of a sanctum without Ambulatory, a Vestibule, Maha Mandapa and an entrance porch. The Sikhara (spire) is clustered round by three rows of minor Sikhara. It has an outstanding deity 2.7m (9 ft) tall of Lord Vishnu in its inner sanctum. Its Maha Mandapa is octagonal showing twenty apsaras brackets which are elaborately crowned and heavily ornamented. The original temple can be dated back to the early half of the 12th century and was the last Chandela temple to be built in Khajuraho and has been extensively repaired and restored at a later date.
