Lakshman Temple

#Temple in Khajuraho

Lakshmana temple is a striking sanctuary stands confronting the Varaha and Devi mandaps. lt is one of the three biggest sanctuaries of Khajuraho and the Western Group and is thought to be the soonest (c. Promotion 954) to have been worked by the Chandella rulers. The sanctuary confronts the east and is committed to Vishnu, by a fairly unseemly name of Lakshman, the sibling of Ram, the legend lord of the epic lyric Ramayana.

The Temple is as tall as it is long, measuring around 25.9 meters in length. lt is raised on a high stage which likewise makes them intrigue figures imperial parades, that you can see before rising the temple stairs. Moving dependably around a sanctuary a clockwise way, the band of figures unfurl like a ceaseless picture scroll. Along the thin southeast side section are sensual boards of sexual customs: of a man occupied with intercourse with a steed, a superb ruler being fanned by a female orderly and other court scenes.
