  • Must visit place near barmer. The remains of at least five temples have been discovered at Kiradu. Of these, only the Someshvara temple is in notable condition. Its surviving parts are sufficient to exactly reconstruct the original temple design. However, it is clear that the original temple was highly decorated with sculptures, including figures of animals and humans.
  • Nice temple to visit ...have many things to see....
  • Kiradu Temple is a very nice temple. The art here is a different and different identity, as far as we can not imagine that such art is not anywhere in the world and this temple is known from the Rajasthan Khajuraho temple.
  • It is a historical place and temples good architecture Most visited place in barmer
  • The Kiradu temples are a group of ruined temples located in the Barmer district of Rajasthan, India. The Kiradu town is located in the Thar desert, about 35 km from Barmer and 157 km from Jaisalmer. The ruins of at least five temples exist at Kiradu. Of these, the Someshvara temple, dedicated to Shiva, is the best-preserved structure. Epigraphic evidence suggests that the temples were constructed during the 11-12th century by the vassals of the Chaulukya(Solanki) monarchs.
