Lakshmana Temple, Khajuraho

4.9
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.
