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.

  • Very nice place. I am dmlt secondry student goragaon haryana india.
  • Lakshmana temple is part of the western group of temples and is one of the three biggest temples in Khajuraho. The temple although named Lakshmana ( brother of Hindu god Rama in Ramayana) is dedicated to Hindu God Vishnu. The entire temple complex stands on a high platform (Jagati) with four subsidiary shrines at the four corners of its rectangular platform. An architectural marvel worth a visit.
  • world class temples famous for its erotic art gives a totally different experience of engraved kamasutra
