    The Parvati temple is a small temple and one of the oldest. It is located very close to the Vishwanatha temple and Nandi temple. This is an active temple.  more »

    Parvati temple dedicated to the goddess Parvati, the consort of Shiva. This is probably the most nondescript shrine from all that are included in the complex. The porch is completely lost, and the sanctuary is preserved only a plinth. In the arch over the door of the sanctuary depicts a sculpture of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Erotic sculptures can be seen only on the front wall on the side and rear walls no sculptures. White walls knocked out from "the common concept of" complex.

Where to stay in Khajuraho

The worldwide fame of the Khajuraho temples has given rise to a vibrant tourist industry; consequently, this relatively small town offers a range of accommodation facilities. Most hotels concentrate along the airport road and main temple road, varying from luxury international chains to low budget lodgings. Five-star deluxe outlets with spas, pools, landscape gardens, and views of temples tend to lie closer to the airport, while economy accommodations surround the eastern group of temples and follow the Khudar River. Some family-friendly, affordable establishments have good views of the temples, and a few of the mid-range hotels feature lovely rooftop restaurants.
