  • The temple contains more erotic sculptures. This is a beautiful temple near to Kanderiya Mahadeva Temple.
  • The Devi Jagadamba Temple is situated within the western group of temples in Khajuraho. Built in early 11th century, it is yet another brilliant example of ancient India's supreme standards of art and architecture.
  • A massive Jagdamba temple is the only female deity temple at Khajuraho.
