Kandariya Mahadev Temple

#Temple in Khajuraho

Kandariya Mahadev Temple is a standout amongst the most forcing structures in the Western gathering of Khajuraho, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the biggest and the most wonderful temple in the entire complex. Devoted to the Hindu Lord Shiva, this venerated hallowed place was worked by Vidyadhara – a capable Chandela ruler. The magnificent craftsmanship of around 900 models, reflected in the amazing and refined design of the sanctuary, gives a knowledge into the city’s imperial past.

As opposed to the complicatedly cut outside, the insides are very straightforward with a lovely Shiva Linga in the garbha graha. There are six compartments in the sanctuary, to be specific corridor, transept, colonnade, sanctum, vestibule and mobile. The design of the Kandariya Mahadev Temple is very novel. You can see stunning statues and outlines of apsaras, dikpalas and surasundari here. The delightfully etched roofs and the external dividers with three even boards highlighting gods of the Hindu pantheon outline the unceasing magnificence of Khajuraho.
