This temple closely resembles the Jagadambi temple (so much so that I had to examine the photos carefully!) and is again constructed with the three-part layout (entrance porch and mahamandapa with lateral transepts, vestibule and and sanctum without ambulatory). The main image in the sanctum is an impressive sculpture of Surya standing in a chariot driven by seven horses. This temple is unique in Khajuraho for being dedicated to Surya, the sun god.
