Chausath Yogini Temple

Chausath Yogini Temple Review

The oldest temple at Khajuraho is set on a granite outcrop southwest of the Shivsagar Tank, a small artificial lake. It may have been built as early as AD 820. It's dedicated to Kali (a form of the Goddess Durga, Slayer of Demons), and its name refers to the 64 chausath (female ascetics) who serve this fierce goddess in the Hindu pantheon. A little more than half that number have survived. Unlike its counterparts, which are made of pale, warm-hued sandstone, this temple is made of granite.
