  • Surrounded by hills around with thick forest, this is 11th century temple of Lord Shiva. Carved stones of this temple are full of stories in stones. Must visit and must see these stone stories to know the centuries old art form of India. What a marvelous place to be. Pride of Chhattisgarh. कैसे थे वे लोग, कैसी थी वे सभ्यताएं, जीवन के मायने तलाशती ये मूर्तियाँ देखनेवालों से सम्वाद स्थापित करती है !! If you have time, come and communicate with them in your leisure time !!

  • The main temple is the Bhoramdeo temple built in stone. [3] The architectural features with erotic sculptures has given a distinct style akin to the Khajuraho temple and the Konarak Sun Temple in Odisha , and hence the Bhoramdeo complex is known by the sobriquet the "Khajuraho of Chhattisgarh". [3] Another temple within a distance of about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from Bhoramdeo, which is mentioned along with the Bhoramdeo complex is the Madwa Mahal, meaning marriage hall in local dialect, also known as Dullhadeo. It was built in 1349 during the reign of Ramchandra Deo of the Nagavanshi dynasty and has a unique Shiva Linga erected over 16 pillars. [3] Location The Bhoramdeao temple complex is built at the foot of the thickly forested scenic backdrop of the Maikal range of hills , [3] in the Daksina Kosala region , which is in the present day Indian state of Chhattisgarh . It is situated 18 km to the North-West of the tehsil town of Kawardha in Kabirdham district .[3][4] The nearest airport to the Bhoramdeo complex is 134 km away near Raipur , which is the capital of Chhattisgarh and Raipur is well coneected with the many major cities of the country. Raipur is also the nearest railhead Bombay-Howarah main line. Road communications from Kawardha, the nearest tehsil town to the temple complex, exists to Raipur (116 km), Rajnandgaon(133 km) and Jabalpur(220 km). [3] There is also a bypass road from Raipur to Madhya Pradesh Highway which skirts the Kanha National Park.[5] History The temple complex, rich in history and archeological details, is dated to the Kalachuri period (10th-12th centuries, one ruling over areas in Central India in west Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and were called Chedi or Haihaya (Heyheya) (northern branch)) with close identity with the sculptures found in nearby archeological sites such as Janjgir, Kalachuri, Narayanpur and Ratanpur sites. The brick temples were built during the rule of Pandus and are similar to those built in Kharod, Palari, Rajim and Sirpur in the state. [2][3] The temple complex, highlighted as a "scintillating poetry in stone", is credited to Nagwanshi Kings who practiced tantrism and who ruled in the then Southern Koshal region , which is now the state of Chhattisgarh. Its construction is dated between the 7th and 12th centuries. [6] As the Gond Tribals of the area worshiped Lord Shiva whom they called Bhoramdeo, the temple was also named Bhoramdeo with the Shiva Linga deified in it
