Lakshmana Temple, Khajuraho
(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Standing on a tall platform, Lakshmana Temple invites you to witness exquisite Indian architecture adorned with intricate carvings of religious deities. Dedicated to Vaikuntha Vishnu, the structure features all the elements of Hindu temple design: it has an entrance porch, a pillared outdoor hall used for public rituals, a small antechamber, and a shrine. Head inside the shrine and find a three-headed and four-armed sculpture of Vaikuntha Vishnu. Though the construction date of the temple remains unknown, historians claim that it was between 930 and 950 BCE. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Khajuraho holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lakshmana Temple and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The only completed temple at Khajuraho. Not big as Kanderiya Mahadeva temple, but has much more sculputers than other temples at there. Sculptures are filled at the side of high platform also. (Sculptures at high temple basement can be see in the platform of ruined Beejamandal temple also.) Sculptures are beautiful and erotic.
  • Erotically attractive..Architect is panoromic and having many curvatures as well. One of the tallest and major temple in Khajuraho.
  • Such exotic art around these temples, makes you wonder, what people and thoughts would be behind them
  • Very much attractive place ,, Architecture Overflows and you feel very much attracted to this place
  • Khajuraho, a world of exotic art. Sculpturally and architecturall! The Lakshman temple has some remarkable feature which place it at the beginning of the finer series of sandstone temples of the western group of temples!
