Khajuraho Sights

Bijamandala Temple

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

As part of continuing explorations since 1999, the largest temple yet—4 meters longer than the Kandariya Mahadeva—has been partially unearthed. On the Bijamandala you can see multiple tiers of beautifully carved moldings and a Shiva lingam placed on a marble pedestal. Images of Vishnu and Brahma have been found as well, and it also houses a lovely image of Saraswati. Archaeologists surmise that the temple, begun in the late 10th or early 11th century and between the

Duladeo and the Chaturbhuj, may never have been completed, judging by the remains and unfinished statues found on the site.
